UK Regulation (EU) 2015/340 sets the validity period for level 6 English Language Proficiency (ELP) endorsement for ATCOs at 9 years.
Level 6 licence endorsements currently held are from either the date of original ELP assessment, or the date of Regulation (EU) 2015/340 ATCO licence issue.
To lessen the impact of revalidating a considerable number of ATCO’s, two reduced Level 6 ELP assessment processes have been produced.
Process ‘A’ for operational ATCOs and process ‘B’ for non-operational ATCOs. The relevant process must be completed the year prior to the ELP expiry date.
