Brexit and Aviation 31

It’s now under 200 days until the end of the Art. 50 Brexit negotiating period.  I’m guessing that’s why we have had an absolute deluge of technical guidance papers popping out of the UK Government[1].  Although many are in the “unlikely event of the UK leaving the EU without a deal” it’s almost as if that’s the aim.  Incidentally, some papers drop the “unlikely” altogether.

If only this huge effort could have been channelled towards something useful.  Certainly, to apply so much civil service effort to health and education would have been a much better idea.

13 September 2018 has been a busy day for the Government’s publications people.  As yet, there’s no paper on my favourite subject: Aviation.  That’s still in the works.

There’s a hint of what maybe to come.  Here’s some words form the paper on vehicle Type Approval.

“After March 2019 if there’s no deal.  In a no deal scenario, type-approvals issued in the UK would no longer be valid for sales or registrations on the EU market. EC type-approvals issued outside of the UK, would no longer be automatically accepted on the UK market.  This means that affected manufacturers would need to ensure that they have the correct type-approval for each market.”

So, duplication, extra costs and other such waste is on the way.

Here’s a random list of the papers published:
