Our ethical requirements for CAA employees

As a public and regulatory body the CAA has a standard set of requirements for employees to cover gifts and hospitality.

CAA employees may not accept a gift from or offer a gift to any person where the value of the gift exceeds £25 unless they have the specific written consent of their line manager.

CAA employees may not receive from, or offer to an individual, any hospitality in excess of £50 unless they have the written consent of their line manager.

Gifts or hospitality received by CAA employees, regardless of their value, have to be registered.

Our ethical requirements for CAA contractors

The CAA has a standard set of requirements for contractors working with the CAA in relation to hospitality and gifts. This states that a ‘contractor shall not receive or agree to receive from any person, or offer or agree to give to, or procure on behalf of any person in the employment of the CAA, any gift or consideration of any kind as an inducement or reward for doing or not doing anything, or for showing favour or disfavour to any person in connection with the contract.’

Any breach of this clause shall entitle the CAA to terminate the contract by immediate written notice and to recover any loss incurred and to recover from the contractor the value of the gift, consideration or inducement.
