Regulatory Policy

The home page of the Regulatory Policy

The CAA's regulatory policy work has four core functions:

  • economic regulation of the two designated airports (Heathrow and Gatwick) and NATS;
  • enforcement of consumer legislation - for example, to protect consumers in instances of flight cancellation and denied boarding, and protect people of reduced mobility when they fly;
  • providing expert policy and economic advice and analysis across CAA, to government and others on airports, airlines and air traffic services; and
  • collecting and analysing aviation statistics and survey responses.
