UK-EU Transition

References to EU regulation or EU websites in our guidance will not be an accurate description of your obligations or rights under UK law.

CAA staff periodically deliver presentations on key elements of aviation security as part of private sector training courses, and also to inward delegations and public / industry events.

We help to ensure the fair and equitable interpretation and application of regulation, widen understanding of its drivers, and improve its effective delivery.

We are responsible for:

  • developing, with industry, new or revised syllabuses for aviation security training, submitting these to DfT for approval.
  • training aviation security instructors and managing the UK list of certified instructors.

The CAA is the industry point of contact for requests for the approval of new aviation security training courses, and makes recommendations to DfT as to whether a course is suitable for such approval.
