State Safety Programme - Channel Islands


A Memoranda of Understanding (MOU), concerning the Crown Dependencies (CD's) assisting the UK Government in meeting its obligations under the Chicago Convention, is in place between the DfT and each of the CD.

The MOU covers the obligations of both parties including the obligation of each of the CD to arrange for regular external audits of its safety oversight arrangements. The MOU also includes the requirement for each of the CD to 'contract in, as may be required, any expert services which cannot be provided in house' to assist the regulator in performing his duties. At the moment, each CD contracts with the UK CAA, through CAA International (CAAi), for the provision of auditing services covering aerodromes and air traffic services.
