Consultation on NATS resilience requirements

Our new consultation sets out the outcome of work we carried out jointly with NATS with regards to NATS’ resilience, and seeks views on a proposed enforcement tool and a new licence condition.

We are proposing to adopt specified definitions of resilience, contingency and business continuity and to set the requirements for the enforcement of these under the NERL licence so that we can have greater assurance that NATS is taking all reasonable steps to minimise and manage disruption.

It also includes our proposals for a new licence condition that will require NATS to consult on and submit a resilience plan setting out how it will comply with its licence obligations.
