New Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) Regulations

From the 9th July 2019, new rules came into effect on the use of EFB for CAT, NCC, SPO and NCO operators. The CAA instigated a new approval process which can be found on the CAA website. CAT operators must seek prior approval, and complete the EFB compliance checklist found in SRG1849.

NCC, SPO and NCO operators do not require approval but the SRG1849 will guide them to the appropriate regulations.

CAT operators already approved for EFB operations may continue to exercise this privilege but should complete the SRG1849 as a gap analysis to ensure compliance with the new regulations.
