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.

From 1 April 2018, the UK CAA requires a test notification to be made where an applicant is to complete a Skill Test, or where a non-UK CAA EASA examiner is to conduct a Proficiency Check or Assessment of Competence in accordance with ARA.FCL.205 and section 2.4 of the EASA Examiner Differences Document (EDD).

Notification may be requested by applicants or by examiners conducting tests/checks, where the applicant to be tested holds a licence or certificate issued by the UK CAA. Where non-UK examiners will be involved in testing, the relevant section of the EDD must be referenced.

A test notification request must be made in writing to testnotification@caa.co.uk, using the process and email format explained in the following CAA Information Notices:

  • For tests/checks conducted by non-UK CAA examiners - IN-2016/003
  • For Skill Tests conducted by UK CAA examiners - IN-2016/004

An automated reply authorising requested tests or checks will follow correctly presented applications, which must be sent well in advance of desired test / check dates.

Please note that where an application is for a CPL, IR or CBIR, CAA Flight Test Bookings must nominate the examiner to be used, as stated in the Information Notices referred to above.
