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.

There are expectations on the aviation industry to be transparent about their ongoing operations, which are set out in The Department for Transport’s Air Navigation Guidance.

Airports and Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) are expected to inform and engage overflown communities about aircraft operational change and change to aircraft movements when changes could have a noise impact on communities.

These expectations are described in detail from page 136 of CAP1616 Airspace Change. As these changes may impact noise on the ground there is a need for airports to ensure that their local communities have sufficient information to understand the nature and causes of the change.

We have collected information from 10 airports and one ANSP across the UK (based on current passenger numbers) and provided details on which elements of the guidance they are currently fulfilling. The marking applied by the CAA is used to determine whether an airport/ANSP is fulfilling the requirements of the guidance. We are not assessing the effectiveness and/or efficiency of the relevant information provision/data type.
