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 purpose of this Safety Notice is:

• to update industry with the latest information concerning laser attacks and their reporting;
• to reinforce earlier advice concerning actions to be taken during and after an attack by lasers;
• to provide advice and guidance concerning eye health following such an attack; and
• to provide useful sources of information to help educate and train operators, aircrew, ATS personnel and airside drivers about the hazards to aircraft in flight, ATC/AFIS towers or airfield vehicles when being targeted by a laser or multiple lasers.

Version 2: The Safety Notice has been amended to highlight the requirements for Mandatory Occurrence Reporting.
