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 criteria against which the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) will make that decision are set out in the following documents which were published in August 2021:

CAP 2156a Airspace change masterplan – CAA acceptance criteria
CAP 2156b Airspace change masterplan – assessment framework

Airspace modernisation is a long and complex programme. We expect the masterplan to be flexible and sufficiently agile to accommodate the evolving context for airspace modernisation, such as any changes or additions to co-sponsor commissions to produce elements of the masterplan, or unanticipated external events.

The CAA will therefore need to update the acceptance criteria over the lifetime of the masterplan as iterations are developed.

In August last year, the CAA also published CAP 2156c Airspace change masterplan – future opportunities to express views which is a short summary of the opportunities that stakeholders have to provide input to Airspace Change Organising Group (ACOG) about the masterplan and to airspace change sponsors about the individual airspace change proposals that make up the masterplan.
