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.

CAA International is a function of the International Group within the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).

We are a social enterprise, driven by reinvesting any profits we make in the global aviation community.

Our reinvestment allows us to deploy the CAA’s expertise where it’s needed the most, develop our partners’ people who will lead the world of aviation tomorrow, and to make positive and sustainable changes happen today.

Working in tandem with two other teams – State Safety Partnerships and International Strategy and Engagement – we foster strong and lasting relationships with aviation organisations internationally, to lay the foundations for long-term collaboration on safety performance and progression of aviation strategies.

Our primary focus is providing advisory, training, examination and licensing services to agencies, fellow National Aviation Authorities and industry in over 140 countries.

We do this on a commercial basis, and a sustainable part of any profit we make is reinvested in the global aviation community through the International Group, wherever it is needed most, to make positive and sustainable changes in aviation today and to develop the people who will lead the world of aviation tomorrow.

We share the vision of the International Group, to raise the standards of aviation across the globe, to protect those who choose to fly and those who do not.

Our work involves assessment and delivery of targeted safety, security and environmental improvements. We offer unparalleled expertise stemming from our insights into best practices defined by the CAA.

We are committed to the role we play in helping to shape tomorrow’s international aviation legislation, improving regulatory capacity and efficiency, and sustaining society’s confidence in aviation.
