EU exit

Please note that, in the event of UK participation in EASA and mutual recognition of licences and certificates ceasing, some CAA website content and application forms may continue to carry the EASA logo or reference the EU or EASA rather than the UK CAA in the short term. These will be updated in due course following the outcome of the transition period negotiations on the long-term aviation relationship between the UK and the EU. In the meantime, the guidance provided and the application forms accessed via the CAA website portal will continue to be valid.

Title:Halon 1211 – Fire Extinguishing Agent – Removal from Use at Aerodromes
Description:Halons are ozone-depleting substances listed as controlled substances in Group III of Annex I to Commission Regulation (EC) No. 1005/2009. Their production in EU Member States has been banned since 1994, in line with the requirements of the Montreal Protocol. Their use, however, continues to be permitted for certain ‘critical uses’ including use on Airport Rescue and Firefighting Service (RFFS) vehicles, and to protect aircraft in hangars and maintenance areas.

The purpose of this Information Notice (IN) is to remind aerodrome operators that the above ‘critical use’ permission ends on 31 December 2016 after which the Halon must not be used.

Status:Cancelled on 3 January 2017
