My cabin crew attestation and medical report were issued by a UK CAA-approved organisation/doctor. Will they still be valid if there’s a non-negotiated Brexit?

If you are going to be working on UK-registered aircraft, yes. UK-issued attestations and medical reports will remain valid and continue to be required.

If you are going to be working on aircraft registered in one of the 27 remaining EU countries, you should contact your airline and/or the National Aviation Authority for the country where your airline’s aircraft are registered before the UK leaves the EU to establish arrangements for recognition of your attestation and medical report.

After Brexit, your UK-issued attestation and medical report may not be considered valid.

What if I am currently applying for an attestation from another EASA member state?

UK-issued attestations will continue to be required if you are going to be working on UK-registered aircraft. They can be held alongside an EASA attestation after the UK leaves the EU. If you are asked to surrender your UK-issued attestation as part of an application to an EASA state before the UK leaves, you should not do so if you are going to be working on UK-registered aircraft after the UK leaves.

What if my existing attestation and medical report were issued by an organisation/doctor approved by another EASA member state?

They would remain valid for work on EU-registered aircraft. For work on UK-registered aircraft, it is intended they would remain valid for a period of two years after the UK leaves the EU.
