UK – EU Transition, and UK Civil Aviation Regulations

To access current UK civil aviation regulations, including AMC and GM, CAA regulatory documents, please use this link to UK Regulation. Please note, if you use information and guidance under the Headings, the references to EU regulations or EU websites in our guidance will not be an accurate information or description of your obligations under UK law. These pages are undergoing reviews and updates.

Free Running Explosive Detection Dogs (FREDDs) are certified under the National Aviation Security Programme (NASP) to deliver screening of cargo in the UK. FREDDs and their handlers are certified as an operational pairing and may only be deployed to screen cargo in these certified pairs. Dog and handler pairs are subject to regular quality oversight to ensure they remain at the required standard.

Updates to this list will be made every time additional FREDDs are certified to be deployed operationally, or should a FREDD and handler pair be suspended or removed from operational deployment. This list should therefore be considered complete, accurate and current.

Application requests and/or questions regarding FREDDs certifications, as well as any general queries, should be directed to the CAA at fredds@avsec.caa.co.uk.
