UK – EU Transition, and UK Civil Aviation Regulations

To access current UK civil aviation regulations, including AMC and GM, CAA regulatory documents, please use this link to UK Regulation. Please note, if you use information and guidance under the Headings, the references to EU regulations or EU websites in our guidance will not be an accurate information or description of your obligations under UK law.

Occurrence reporting is a mandatory requirement under the Space Industry Regulations 2021.

An occurrence is an unexpected event, fortuitous or otherwise arising during spaceflight activities or in the preparation for those activities. It is also an incident that, if not corrected or addressed, could or has resulted in an incident or major accident.

The sole objective of an occurrence report is to prevent an accident, without the apportionment of blame or liability.

Occurrence reports are treated confidentially, to maintain full and free reporting from the space industry and to protect the identity of individuals.
