UK Civil Aviation Regulations

These are published by the CAA on our UK Regulations pages. EU Regulations and EASA Access Guides published by EASA no longer apply in the UK. Our website and publications are being reviewed to update all references. Any references to EU law and EASA Access guides should be disregarded and where applicable the equivalent UK versions referred to instead.

The following entities maintain an operating and effective Security Management System (SeMS) which aligns to the UK Civil Aviation Authority’s CAP1223 framework.

We are currently working with a number of in-flight suppliers in developing a SeMS.

Close In-flight suppliers

There is currently no legal requirement for industry to develop a Security Management System.

The entities listed on this page are working with the UK Civil Aviation Authority in managing their aviation security performance and this sits alongside our currently compliance oversight regime.

This does not mean that other organisations do not implement their own form of Security Management System or that we have any lack in confidence in their security performance.
