As New Zealand’s civil aviation regulator, the Civil Aviation Authority has a statutory obligation under the Civil Aviation Act 1990 to promote civil aviation safety and security and contribute to an integrated, safe, responsive, and sustainable transport system.
The Authority recovers the costs of its regulatory activities through a mix of Government funding, industry levies, hourly charges, and specific fees. Government funding is determined through an annual budgeting process. Fees, charges, and levies are reviewed every three years.
As directed by Cabinet in August 2012, the Authority is expected to provide advice on any recommended changes to existing fees, charges, and levies to the Minister of Transport by 1 July 2015.
The review is focused more on re-balancing the CAA's revenues than on increasing revenue. To enable that, the current funding review project is divided into two stages.
The first stage is focused on the underlying principles of the Authority’s funding framework, and addresses the question, “Who Should Pay?”, and “How should they pay”, for the Authority’s services.
The second stage is focused on answering the question, "How much should they pay?".
In July 2014, the CAA released a discussion document and a set of questions and answers to assist those who wished to provide written responses.
