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.

Every major commercial airport in the UK is required by law to have facilities for consultation. In practice, this generally means the creation of an Airport Consultative Committee. Government has produced guidance outlining how they should operate. The role of the Consultative Committee is to help provide a forum for discussing airport-related issues with all those who may be affected. Typically, the Consultative Committee will include representatives of businesses that operate from the airport, passengers, and local residents. All committees have an independent chairperson.

If you would like to know more about the work of a Consultative Committee at any airport, contact the Committee secretary.
