As part of a review of the UK’s independent aviation regulator, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), the UK Government has launched a Call for Evidence. The review will run until spring 2023.

It will enable anybody who uses the CAA or is affected by its work, including airports, pilots, airlines and passengers, to provide insight and evidence to inform the Government review on everything from the CAA’s strategy to its organisation and performance.  The Call for Evidence will ask questions such as whether the CAA has the right powers to effectively regulate the aviation market, whether its charges are good value for money and whether it is effectively structured.

Having begun in August this year, the wider CAA review forms part of the Cabinet Office’s Public Bodies Review Programme, which aims to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of public bodies and help these organisations build on their success in tackling the unprecedented challenges of recent years.

The CAA is tasked with a number of responsibilities, including ensuring the highest standards of aviation safety and security, the efficient use of airspace and space operations and protecting consumer rights.

Responses can be made via the UK Government website.
