From the UK CAA – U.S. MIP Signed

UPDATE: On March 26, Transport Canada and the Civil Aviation Authority of the United Kingdom signed the English version of the “Hard-Brexit Scenario” for the working agreement. The agreements have been posted on the UK CAA website and can be found by clicking here.

On March 14, the Civil Aviation Authority of the United Kingdom posted details of new implementing procedures agreed to under the bilateral aviation safety agreement (BASA) between the UK and the United States.

“The agreements ensure that the level of cooperation between the two authorities and their systems will remain the same if the UK leaves the European Union without a negotiated exit in place,” the CAA noted in its release.

Since the UK and EU continue to negotiate the terms of “Brexit,” and with the European parliament agreeing to delay the separation date from late March to early April 2019, the FAA has so far withheld publication of the agreement.

10/18/18 - UK CAA Briefs U.S. Industry on Brexit

October 18, 2018

On Oct. 17, representatives from the United Kingdom’s Civil Aviation Authority (UK CAA) briefed ARSA and other aviation organizations on efforts to minimize the disruptive impact of the UK’s scheduled March 29, 2019 exit from the European Union (EU).

In addition to a detailed overview of various Brexit scenarios, the presentation provided links to resources, including the Q&A page established by the UK CAA and EASA (on the last slide).

As described in the presentation, UK regulators are working with counterparts in the United States, Canada and Brazil to update bilateral aviation safety agreements to prevent disruption for industry should the UK not join EASA after Brexit. The UK is also preparing Brexit legislation to, among other things, adopt current EASA regulations and recognize EASA approvals and certificates. However, UK aviation businesses in particular still face significant uncertainty.
