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 new guidance material (GM) represents the first in a series of rulemaking activities whose purpose is to complete the harmonisation of air traffic management (ATM) and air navigation services (ANS) safety regulation under the umbrella of UK Reg (EU) 2018/1139 (“the UK Basic Regulation”), moving away from the current regulatory framework under the Air Navigation Order.
This activity will see the development of UK Reg (EU) 2017/373 “the ATM/ANS Implementing Rule (IR)” through the adoption into Annex IV (Part-ATS) of requirements that are already implemented in the UK through Civil Aviation Publications (CAPs); in particular the Manual of Air Traffic Services (MATS) Part 1 (CAP 493) and the Flight Information Service Officer (FISO) Manual (CAP 797).
Whilst the terms contained in this GM are not yet utilised within the acceptable means of compliance (AMC) to Annex IV (Part-ATS), this will be addressed in subsequent phases of the harmonising rulemaking activity. Importantly, the terms defined within this GM are sourced from International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs) and Procedures for Air Navigation Services (PANS) and have already largely been implemented in the UK through CAP 1430 the UK ATM Vocabulary.
