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 below, 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.

The Authorised Party or Certified Designee of an IDERA can remove an existing designation by submitting the CA53 IDERA designation removal form. Once completed, the form should be scanned and emailed to aircraft.reg@caa.co.uk, faxed to (01293) 768590, or mailed to the Aircraft Registration, Aviation House, Beehive Ring Road, Crawley, West Sussex, RH6 0YR.

Once the Designation has been removed the IDERA will revert to the Authorised Party.

Filling out CA53

  • The form must be signed by an authorised signatory of the Authorised Party or an authorised signatory of the Certified Designee, usually at director or company secretary level. If the form is signed by another party then power of attorney must explicitly empower the signatory to execute the removal of the designation of the IDERA on behalf of the Authorised Party or Certified Designee (as appropriate).
  • The Authorised Party can revoke the IDERA or remove the Designation without reference to the Certified Designee by using the appropriate form. See IDERA revocation process for more information.

After your form is submitted

  • Once the removal of the IDERA Designation is confirmed a confirmatory email/letter will be sent to the Certified Designee and the Authorised Party
  • If the removal of the Designation of the IDERA cannot be accepted an acknowledgment of receipt and advice on why it has not been accepted will be sent to the Authorised Party or Certified Designee, whichever is appropriate (usually by email).

All communications will be carried out in accordance with our service standards.
