Our Responsibilities to Aviation
We have a number of international and national responsibilities to ensure safe and reliable air transport.
The Met Office is designated by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to undertake these responsibilities in accordance with the International standards and recommended practices set out in Annex 3 to the convention on International Civil Aviation published by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).
The Met Office has developed plans for the provision of aviation meteorological services and capabilities under designation from CAA for EU Reference Period 3 (RP3), covering the period January 2020 to end 2024. The document available here includes feedback on these plans from stakeholders.
