UK CAA consults on future charges

UK CAA consults on future charges

14-Oct-2011 Source: CAA

The UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has launched a consultation on its Scheme of Charges for 2012/13. The CAA said it welcomed all comments on its proposed charges for the new financial year, which are due to take effect on 1 April 2012. The consultation will close on 21 December 2011.

The CAA said it was committed to controlling costs, while at the same time investing in new processes to deliver further savings in the future. More transactions and payments will increasingly be carried out online, the CAA added, but that would require an investment in new systems.

The CAA’s major charges, which generate most of the regulator’s income, are proposed to rise by around two per cent, significantly below inflation. This is despite the CAA having to take on additional costs for new activities. While some charges will rise by more than two per cent, such as the Economic Regulation of Airports Scheme, other charges, including variable Air Operators Certificate unit rates, will be reduced.

The CAA said it aimed to be an efficient and effective organisation that complies with ‘better regulation’ principles, as well as providing value for money. The charging proposals represent a fair and balanced approach to achieving these aims for the benefit of the aviation industry, consumers and the wider public.
