Reforms to the Streetworks Qualifications regulations

Businesses that undertake streetworks, such as those carried out by or on behalf of utility companies, are required to ensure that an operative with the necessary qualifications is on site when work is in progress. The regulations covering these qualifications, and the procedures for assessment, registration and renewal of qualifications, contain a number of inconsistencies which the department is seeking to address through this measure.

Updating the licence modification process for the en-route air traffic licence

NERL is the currently the sole provider of en-route air traffic control services over the UK, operating as a statutory monopoly under an economic licence issued by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). The Department is proposing to change how the CAA can make changes to NERL’s licence conditions.
