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.

This guidance material is intended to promote best practice for aircraft manufacturers, operators, pilots and their trainers in the design and use of emergency and abnormal checklists. It will assist the flight crew to manage and contain abnormal and emergency situations that adversely affect flight safety by providing guidance on human factors best practice throughout the design process. A Checklist Assessment Tool (CHAT) has been provided to enable all concerned to audit and improve both existing and new checklists and verify their usability.
Note: Parts of the CAP are out of date due to the coming into force of EASA Regulations. See IN-2014/113 for further details.
