Terms of Reference
There are three groups who participate with the CAA in the rule development process, the Aviation Community Advisory Group (ACAG), Issue Assessment Group (IAG), and Project Working Group (PWG).
The Aviation Community Advisory Group is a body of members drawn from the wider aviation community and facilitates the development of aviation community views on rules issues. The ACAG has an advisory and monitoring role throughout the rule development process. It comprises eleven members, one from each of five permanent member organisations and six members elected by the aviation community.
Issue Assessment Groups are convened to assess issues brought forward for consideration for a rules-based solution. IAGs comprise aviation community members and relevant CAA specialists. Their function is to identify the problem associated with each issue, undertake the risk assessment and identify the solution options.
Project Working Groups are convened to contribute technical and other specialist inputs to the development of rules solutions, as part of a rule project undertaken by the CAA.
The Terms of Reference for each of these three groups have been developed and agreed with the aviation community and are listed below.
