Rule Brief

The objective of Part 174 is to provide the regulatory requirements for persons or organisations wishing to provide meteorological services in support of the New Zealand civil aviation air navigation system. The rule also provides for the organisations to provide support to enable New Zealand's obligations under the ICAO Regional Air Navigation Plans to be discharged.

Part 174 adopts the standard layout for the rule parts relating to the certification of organisations. The layout prescribes specific requirements for the certification (entry standards), operation (continued operations), and safety audit (surveillance) of persons providing aviation meteorological services.

The provision of meteorological services to meet New Zealand's international obligations under the ICAO Regional Air Navigation Plans is subject to separate formal agreements between the Authority and the appropriate certificated meteorological service provider.
