Consultation on a Proposal for Amendment to National Legislation concerning Aviation Security Regulation and Related Matters

NOTICE OF A CONSULTATION ON A PROPOSAL FOR AMENDMENT TO NATIONAL LEGISLATION CONCERNING AVIATION SECURITY REGULATION AND RELATED MATTERS

 

On 1 January 2013, the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport transferred certain of the Department’s aviation security regulation functions to the Irish Aviation Authority (IAA) by means of the European Communities (Civil Aviation Security) (Amendment) Regulations 2012 (Statutory Instrument No. 551 of 2012).

This proposal aims to support through legislative amendment the implementation of aviation security policy and regulation in Ireland, and, in that regard, additional provisions concerning the role and functions of the IAA.

In particular, the proposal would regularise the legal provisions with regard to cost recovery by the IAA concerning its functions for aviation security regulation, in line with its wider safety regulation function under the Irish Aviation Authority Act, 1993.

A copy of the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport Consultation Paper containing a more detailed explanation of the proposed legislative changes are included with this notice below.

In order to assist in the consideration of the Proposal, the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport will run a consultation, which is open to all the relevant stakeholders in Ireland, over the next six weeks up to Friday the 2nd of December 2016.

Submissions are invited with regard to the Proposal and can be sent directly to the Department by e-mail to aviationpolicy@dttas.ie (link sends e-mail)

Please note that, in line with established practice for public consultation, submissions may be published on the Department’s website.
