Performance Based Regulation

Performance based regulation means developing a comprehensive risk picture with the organisations we regulate and building our knowledge and data to make sure we target our oversight and regulatory activities in the areas where it will make the biggest difference.

Our vision

To continue to work with industry to demonstrably reduce safety risk across the total aviation system.

What to expect if you are an Accountable Manager

Targeted safety risk conversations between Accountable Managers and the CAA is what drives the benefits of a risk-based approach.

Accountable Manager Meetings (AMMs) are a regular part of our oversight process to ensure that the CAA and the Accountable Manager have a similar perspective on the major risks facing each entity. Further guidance for the Industry can be found in CAP1508 - Getting the most out of the Accountable Manager Meeting

The Performance Based Regulatory Industry Group

The PBR Industry Group (PBRIG) was established to maintain regular engagement between the CAA and representatives from all sectors of UK aviation. The group has a mandate to work collaboratively in developing the risk-based approach to the benefit of the industry. If you are interested in attending this forum then please email SPR@caa.co.uk.
