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 1096 provides guidance to crane users on the crane notification process and lighting and marking requirements applicable to cranes. In the main, crane-related issues are considered and managed in much the same way as for any tall object, however due to the distinctive character of the crane construction and operations, they are addressed separately.

IMPORTANT: Implementation of the guidance in CAP 1096 will be aligned to the rollout of the Airspace Co-ordination and Obstacle Management Service (ACOMS). Until further notice, please use the guidance found at https://www.caa.co.uk/commercial-industry/airspace/event-and-obstacle-notification/crane-notification/
