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.

We are the UK's space regulator and play a central role in the expanding space sector. We license launches, spaceports, and satellites and are responsible for the ongoing monitoring of space activity, including hundreds of satellites in orbit. Our work is helping make UK space activity safe, sustainable and secure for all.

Our highly skilled, multi-disciplined space team includes regulators with experience in hazardous sectors, space and aerospace engineers, and environment experts. We also draw on expertise from teams across the CAA to support the safe operation of space activities.
