The UK-EU trade deal, announced on 24 December 2020, includes agreements on air transport and aviation safety which are due to come into effect at 23.00 GMT on 31 December 2020 when the UK ceases to take part in the EU Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and other EU institutions.
While the agreements involve some elements of continuity, they do not constitute a replication of the UK’s regulatory arrangements as part of the EASA/EU framework and many sections of the aviation and aerospace industries will face changes after 31 December, as this microsite sets out.
We will study the detail of the new agreements and will update relevant pages of the microsite as information becomes clearer about how the new arrangements will work in practice. We will notify stakeholders of the updates through the SkyWise alert system. If you haven’t already done so, please subscribe to the EU exit category in the SkyWise system: skywise.caa.co.uk
Changes to the reporting of Mandatory and Voluntary Occurrence Reports will be required. These changes will be dependent on the reporting method you currently use. This page sets out what you need to consider. Regulation EU (No) 376/2014 has been translated into UK legislation, the existing requirements on who reports and what’s reported under this regulation remain unaffected.
Will I still have to report in an ECCAIRS /ADREP compatible format?
The CAA will retain the ECCAIRS platform under an existing ICAO - EU agreement. Organisations already compliant with the reporting format element of EU376/2014 via a software solution to the CAA are unaffected. Organisations currently working towards a compliant software solution should continue this work, following the advice on the CAP 382 pages of the CAA Website.
