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.

Part 1 of The Air Traffic Management and Unmanned Aircraft Act 2021 gave the CAA new roles and powers in relation to the Secretary of State’s powers to give a direction to “a person involved in airspace change” requiring them to progress or co-operate in an airspace change where doing so will assist in the delivery of the CAA’s Airspace Modernisation Strategy.

This document sets out:
• the CAA’s advisory role regarding the use of the direction powers
• policy and guidance regarding the CAA’s enforcement powers where a direction has been issued, and
• a Statement of Policy on imposing penalties and determining their amount where a requirement in an enforcement order has been contravened.
