NZALPA’S submission on the exposure draft of the Civil Aviation Bill

NZALPA has now lodged its submission on the Civil Aviation Bill exposure draft. 

The Bill replaces the Civil Aviation Act 1990 and the Airport Authorities Act 1966 with a single new statute that includes proposals to update and improve the safety, security and efficiency of the New Zealand civil aviation system. This is one of, if not the most, important pieces of legislation in New Zealand in terms of civil aviation.

 An exposure draft is used by government to identify and resolve practical problems with changes to legislation before it is made or introduced to Parliament. It can be particularly helpful for complex or technical regulatory requirements, such as those in civil aviation regulation.

NZALPA met with Transport Minister Phil Twyford as well as Ministry of Transport officials in the lead up to the publication of the exposure draft.
