Safety Regulations
Leveraging UK CAA expertise across the entire spectrum of aviation safety regulation, we can support States in the following areas:
  • Review of institutional regulatory frameworks in accordance with ICAO’s Critical Elements
  • Assess existing laws, rules and aviation regulations
  • Advise amendment or recommendations to modernise existing legislation, harmonised with international ICAO and EASA standards
  • Assist in the drafting of new civil aviation legislation and regulations
  • Legal advice to support the establishment of new Civil Aviation Authorities
  • Support the establishment of independent Air Accident Investigation Units and the development of relevant safety regulations
  • Establishment of processes to maintain current and relevant SARP.
ICAO Audits
Drawing on the experience and technical know-how of UK CAA expertise, we can support States with limited resources raise their level of effective implementation.

ICAO USOAP and ICVM Safety Audit Assistance
Preparing for an USOAP audit, CMA or ICVM can be daunting, especially when safety compliance is essential for continuing aviation and economic growth. We can provide UK CAA best practice advice across all aspects of the audit process to help States achieve safety compliance with ICAO Standards.

Pre-Audit Preparation
Building on our experience working in over 140 countries, we can assemble multidisciplinary teams made up of UK CAA experts to work with you to help you prepare for the audit.

Our team will develop an Inception Report, highlighting the status of Protocol Questions, addressing all the ICAO safety critical areas including,

  • Legislation
  • Organisation
  • Flight Operations
  • Airworthiness
  • Personnel Licensing
  • Air Navigation Services
  • Accident and Incident Investigation
  • Aerodromes & Ground Aids

Post-Audit Action Plans
Where necessary, we can work with you to address any issues raised during the safety audit. Our on-site team will assist in responding to any raised Significant Safety Concerns (SSCs) and help develop a Corrective Action Plan (CAP).

Capacity Building & Training
Through tailored advice and training, we can provide institutional capacity development to ensure inspectorate staff is competent in carrying out their tasks.

ICAO Standards and Recommended Practises (SARPs) Implementation
Our participation on ICAO panels, together with our experience as a regulator, places us in an unparalleled position to support your organisation. We can provide expert implementation advice on ICAO/EASA standards in all critical areas of civil aviation.

Safety Manuals and Guidance Material
One of our key strengths is in assisting a wide range of industry partners to ensure products and procedures meet the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) requirements and recommended practices or UK CAA standards.
