Section 33: Enforcement order

139.Section 33 provides that the CAA may issue an enforcement order to a person if it has determined that the person is contravening a condition set out in a contravention notice. It may also do so if it has determined that the person has contravened a condition set out in a contravention notice and, before the end of the representation period, has failed to take all the appropriate steps specified in the notice. An enforcement order must be published, specifying the condition and contravention, the appropriate steps to be taken and a reasonable period in which to take them, and the CAA’s reasons for giving the order.

Impact Assessments

Impact Assessments generally accompany all UK Government interventions of a regulatory nature that affect the private sector, civil society organisations and public services. They apply regardless of whether the regulation originates from a domestic or international source and can accompany primary (Acts etc) and secondary legislation (SIs). An Impact Assessment allows those with an interest in the policy area to understand:

  • Why the government is proposing to intervene;
  • The main options the government is considering, and which one is preferred;
  • How and to what extent new policies may impact on them; and,
  • The estimated costs and benefits of proposed measures.
