At the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) we regulate and implement medical requirements for professional flight crew, private pilots, air traffic controllers and cabin crew.
We also oversee the approval and continued certification of Aeromedical Centres (AeMCs) and an Aeromedical Examiner (AME) network.
Our medical records system - Cellma
The CAA medical records system (Cellma) can be accessed as a service via the CAA Customer Portal. This online system has replaced all existing paper-based application forms and also allows applicants to view their own medical record and to track the progress of applications and referrals to the Authority.
