UPDATE: The CAA is launching a series of webinars to give aviation and aerospace businesses the information they need to prepare for the new regulatory landscape from 1 January 2021.


CAA UK-EU transition webinars

As negotiations between the UK and the EU over aviation safety arrangements continue, there remains a possibility that the UK will leave the European system with a no negotiated agreement. It is crucial businesses understand the effects the new framework will have and how best to prepare for them. The series covers a range of specialist issues, as detailed below:

Following the country’s exit from the EU on 31 January, the UK entered a transition period during which EU law continues to apply and the UK and its aviation sector continues to participate in the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) systems while the future UK-EU relationship on aviation is determined.

The CAA has developed this microsite to be a central source of information for the aviation and aerospace industries about the actions they would need to take to be prepared for the transition period ending with the UK no longer being an EASA participant and without continued mutual recognition of safety certificates and licences. Where a specific action is required, this is underlined. We will endeavour to keep this microsite updated as new information is made available to us.

Transition period

Following the country’s exit from the EU on 31 January, the UK has entered a transition period during which EU law continues to apply and the UK and its aviation sector continues to participate in the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) system while the future UK-EU relationship on aviation is determined. During the transition period the UK continues to be party to the EU Air Services Regulation and mutual recognition provisions established under the EASA Basic Regulation.  Existing agreements between the EU and third countries, such as those relating to air connectivity and aviation safety, will continue to include the UK. As a result, businesses and individuals operating in the UK should see no change to existing conditions during the transition period, which is due to end on 31 December 2020.

Determining the future relationship between the UK and the EU on aviation at the end of the transition period is a matter for the UK Government in its negotiations with the EU. There are various possible outcomes, each of which may require different preparations. We are providing information on this microsite to enable aviation businesses and organisations to make their own decisions on how to prepare for these different scenarios.

Preparing for the transition period ending with the UK no longer an EASA participant and without continued mutual recognition

The future relationship between the UK and the EU on aviation safety will be negotiated during the transition period. The CAA and the industry need to be prepared for any scenario. We have been preparing for the transition period ending with the UK no longer an EASA participant for some time to ensure that, in this scenario, there would be maximum stability for passengers and the aviation and aerospace sectors. A short summary guide to the regulatory framework in this scenario is here.

The purpose of this microsite

The CAA has developed this microsite to be a central source of information for the aviation and aerospace industries about the actions they would need to take to be prepared for a scenario in which the UK is no longer participant in EASA systems and UK-issued safety certificates are no longer automatically recognised within the EU.

Sign-up for updates

This microsite will be updated frequently with new information for our stakeholders. We urge you to keep abreast of relevant updates. To be alerted to significant new information, please subscribe to the EU exit category in our SkyWise alerting system: SkyWise.caa.co.uk

Consumers

This microsite is aimed at individuals in the aviation and aerospace industries. The Government and the CAA are working closely with the industry to seek to maximise continuity and stability for aviation whatever conditions exist at the end of the Brexit transition period. Our aim is for consumers to notice as little impact as possible on their air travel arrangements at that point.
