Regulation: Notice of proposed amendments (NPA) reference table

Military Aviation Authority

If consultation is to be undertaken on an amendment to the regulations or the implementation of new regulation, the MAA will issue an NPA. The NPA will explain the rationale behind the amendment, the possible impact on the regulated community (developed into an impact assessment (IA)) and set the deadline for comment/feedback. Feedback is important to further develop the IA.

Comments or enquiries on any NPA are to be sent to by the date stated in the NPA. Please use the NPA Response Form template provided below to return your consolidated comments.

After the comments closure date, the NPA will be removed from the website.

NPA comment response sheets contain the collated MAA responses to individual NPA publications.

In the final preparation for publication similar Regulated Community comments have been consolidated into one response.

Some of the MAA responses to the Regulated Community comments may have been superseded by further internal review prior to the official publication of the new issue.
