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.

The CAA has published preliminary finding of an investigation into an alleged breach of licence conditions by NATS En Route (NERL). The investigation followed the receipt of complaints regarding the performance of NERL’s operations in managing the London Approach Service.

The CAA has investigated the matter and while flight delays did increase in 2016 compared with previous years, the CAA has preliminarily found that NERL did not fail to take all reasonable steps to meet demand. The investigation also found that NERL has not discriminated against any party in delivering the London Approach Service. The CAA has made a number of recommendations to NERL to ensure it improves its contingency planning and the resilience of its operations in the future.

The CAA is now awaiting representations from interested parties after which it will consider whether or not to confirm its preliminary findings.
