Civil Aviation Rules

Rules are generally made when setting a common or consistent standard is the best way to manage a safety risk or address an issue with the aviation system. They are made under the Civil Aviation Act 1990 by the Minister of Transport. While the Minister makes the rules, anyone can petition for a new rule or to update an existing rule, and there are several opportunities for aviation participants to get involved in the rule-making process.
