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.

Identifying the information you require

The Civil Aviation Authority is an open organisation that endeavours to make as much information available as possible.

The CAA has adopted the Model Publication Scheme set down by the Information Commissioner's Office and, in addition, the CAA guide to information provides a summary of the information which is available from the CAA about its statutory responsibilities, structure and functions, and advice about how that information can be obtained.

CAA publications and forms are made freely available in the Publications section of our website.

Your legal right of access to information is covered by the Freedom of Information Act 2000, the Environmental Information Regulations 2004 or, in the case of personal information, the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (GDPR) and Data Protection Act 2018.

Before making a request for information under one of these access regimes please check if the information you require is already available through the CAA’s website.
