The UK Civil Aviation Authority and the Civil Aviation Administration of China have today signed a Working Arrangement on the reciprocal acceptance of Production and Airworthiness Approval.

The Working Arrangement allows for the export of new and used aircraft, products, parts and appliances between the UK and China, retaining the arrangements in place when the UK was a member of the European Union (EU).

The Working Arrangement is one of many negotiated in recent months with several countries, including Brazil, Singapore, and Canada, following the UK's departure from the EU and European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) system. Further agreements will be announced in the coming weeks.
