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 factors (HF) and our understanding of its effects on safety performance continues to evolve and develop.

ICAO has developed a guidance manual for regulators to support Regulatory understanding and approaches that should be considered when managing and overseeing Human Performance (see useful links). We will be using this material to further develop our approaches across all of the CAA’s activities.

In order to reduce HF risks to aviation safety we must influence attitudes and behaviours while embedding HF thinking into everything we do.

By taking this approach, we aim to improve aviation safety and keep the interests of the consumer at the heart of our work.

If you have any feedback to give on the strategy or anything relating to human factors in civil aviation please contact us at human.factors@caa.co.uk.
