Section 102: CAA efficiency

309.Section 102 amends section 21(2) of CAA 1982 so as to require the annual report made by the CAA under section 21(1) to include a statement by the CAA about efficiency in the performance of its functions (an "efficiency statement") and an assessment by the CAA's auditors of that statement.

310.Section 102 also inserts in section 21 of CAA 1982 new subsections (2A) and (2B). New subsection (2A) provides a power for the Secretary of State to give directions to the CAA about the matters that must be covered in an efficiency statement. New subsection (2B) imposes on the auditors appointed under section 15(2) of CAA 1982 a duty to produce an assessment of the efficiency statement.

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.
