Aerodrome rescue and fire fighting services – provision of extinguishing agents

The purpose of this Information Notice (IN2017/031) is to advise aerodrome operators that the CAA intends to withdraw UK Acceptable Means of Compliance (AltMoC) 4 (see CAP 1168), and change CAP 168 Chapter 8 in order to align the complementary extinguishing agent requirements at UK licensed and certificated aerodromes with the standards and recommended practices of ICAO Annex 14, and EASA acceptable means of compliance (AMC) to Commission Regulation (EU) No 139/2014.
