UK Aviation Authority creates Sustainability Committee
Expert selection started; it will deal with environment and noise pollution
The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) of the United Kingdom is creating a new committee that will deal specifically with environmental sustainability. The group will provide technical consultancy for dossiers being examined by regulators on matters relating to environmental protection and economic sustainability. At the moment, the authority has started a process of selecting experts with open applications.
"The Environmental Sustainability Panel will play an important role in helping us understand and address the important environmental issues facing aviation, including our new expertise on noise pollution. The success of this panel will depend on the quality of its membership. Through this recruitment process we hope to find experts with whom we look forward to working collegially and constructively", said CAA's Head of Strategy, Nic Stevenson.
The decision of the British regulators stems from the desire to support the aviation industry in the delicate phase of transition towards environmental sustainability and the management and reduction of noise impact. Under this last aspect, in fact, from April 1, 2022 CAA will assume new functions. This follows the abolition of the Independent Commission on Civil Aviation Noise (ICCAN), ordered in September 2021 by the British government.
