Civil Aviation Advisory Publications (CAAP) are published by the GCAA under the authority and delegation of the Director General and in accordance with the provisions of GCAA Authority Law Article 7. The intent of these publications is to provide information and guidance material, as well as GCAA requirements, to operators of UAE registered aircraft and interested organizations and individuals.
Although the CAAP itself is not a legal instrument, it may have legal effect in that failure to comply with specific requirements may lead to non-compliance with Civil Aviation Regulations. The use of the word “shall” in the CAAP should be seen as a mandatory requirement.
All publications are considered electronically approved even if they do not bear a signature and stamp.
