Title:Air Traffic Controllers – Licensing
Description:Details the CAA’s procedures to be followed in order to become licensed in accordance with Commission Regulation (EU) 2015/340 and incorporate the (EU) 2017/373 requirements. Effective from December 2018.

Use of the eight week grace period

Regulation 2015/340 AMC1 ATCO.AR.D.001(a) Procedure for the issue, revalidation and renewal of licences, ratings, endorsements and authorisations states that the CAA may allow the privileges of a licence to be exercised for a period of eight weeks after successful completion of the applicable examination(s) and assessment(s), pending the issue of the licence, rating or endorsement.

The CAA may allow this grace period to be used (which is only to allow the CAA processing time of the licence), however this will only commence once the applicant has received an acknowledgement of their application back from the CAA.

It is not to be assumed that this will automatically be given. CAP 1251 will be updated in due course.
