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.

CAP 722 provides guidance and policy on the operation of unmanned aircraft systems within the UK. It is intended to assist those who are involved in all aspects of the development and operation of UAS.

This edition contains a number of amendments following regulatory changes since previous publication, and removal of the Pre-defined risk assessment section, which is now contained in a separate CAP document. Annex A, B, C and D have also been removed, following the publication of formal Acceptable Means of Compliance and Guidance Material for UAS.
