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.

Human error is identified as the main cause or contributory factor in
approximately 75% of all aviation accidents and incidents. This strategy aims to bring consistency across the industry, promote positive attitudes and develop the CAA’s transition to performance-based oversight in this area.
