Emergency Rules

Section 31 empowers the Director of Civil Aviation to make Emergency Rules from time to time in accordance with section 35 as may be necessary to alleviate or minimise any risk of the death of, or a serious injury to any person, or of damage to any property. An Emergency Rule is effective for 90 days from its date of notification in the Gazette. Emergency Rules currently in force are listed on this page.

The CAA offers a FREE notification service that will send you an email alerting you to some changes relating to rules, airspace, and airworthiness. This is provided as a helpful aid – you should not rely on any such service for compliance – email is too unreliable for that.
