NCAA introduces revised civil aviation regulations

16 January 2013, 12:05

Lagos - The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has introduced the newly promulgated Volume II of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Regulations (NCARs) 2012 as amended, a statement said.

The statement was signed by the agency's spokesman, Mr Sam Adurogboye, on Tuesday in Ikeja.

The statement quoted the NCAA Director-General, Dr Harold Demuren, as describing the introduction of the new regulations as a major landmark event in the annals' of aviation over-sight.

Demuren said the development would further boost the provisions of the Civil Aviation Act 2006.

“The Regulations will also help to standardise the operational procedures, implementation and enforcement in the industry, in conformity with standard and recommended practices contained in the annexes to the Chicago Convention.

“Before now, the industry can only boast of the July 2009 NCARs version that covers all areas of aviation practices, except the Aerodrome and Consumers Rights.”

Demuren said that the amended regulations would also address certain conflicting issues pertaining to civil aviation legislation.

``When there is no law, there is no offence''.

“The new Regulations, comprising parts 12 to 20 are promulgated to repeal and replace NCARs 2006, parts 12 to 18. It will not only serve as a better legislative guideline, but also a tenet to be sustained in the aviation industry.

“The new Regulations consist of nine parts which are: Aerodrome Regulations, Air Navigation Services Regulations, the Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air Regulations.

“others are Environmental Protection Regulation, Aviation Security Regulations, Economic Regulations, Consumer Protection Regulations and Appeals, Citation, Repeals and Offences.”

He noted that the new Regulation was the second amendment of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Regulations since its promulgation in November 2006.

He recalled that the first was amended in 2009, to bring it in conformity with the International Civil Aviation Organisation model Regulations.
