Emailled to me by CASA yesterday

 

Dear Members of the Australian Aviation Community,

 

On 1 September 2014, CASA implemented interim cost recovery arrangements for the pilot licensing suite of regulations covering Part 61, Part 64, Part 141 and Part 142. In order to make these cost recovery changes permanent, CASA has developed a Cost Recovery Implementation Statement (2014-15 CRIS) to facilitate the public consultation and legislative processes for the update of the Civil Aviation (Fees) Regulations 1995 with the new fees.

 

As per the Australian Government Cost Recovery Guidelines, July 2014, CASA is required to seek your comments on the draft 2014-15 CRIS. Following public consultation, CASA will need to seek approval from the Government to cost recover the new pilot licencing suite of regulations covering Part 61, Part 64, Part 141 and Part 142 in order to update the Civil Aviation (Fees) Regulations 1995 with the new fees by the 31 March 2015.

 

The 2014-15 CRIS documents CASA’s cost recovery arrangements for its aviation safety regulatory services and the cost recovered activity. It will be in place during 2014-15 and the next three years to demonstrate their consistency with the Guidelines.

 

Certain fees and charges included in the 2014-15 CRIS include the changes as a result of the introduction of the pilot licencing suite legislation:

 

  • Civil Aviation Legislation Amendment Regulation 2013 (No. 1) dated 12 December 2013
     
     
  • Civil Aviation Legislation Amendment (Flight Crew Licensing and Other Matters) Regulation 2013 dated 12 December 2013
     
     
  • Civil Aviation Legislation Amendment (Flight Crew Licensing) Regulation 2014 dated 21 August 2014 (the amended regulations), effective from 01 September 2014
     
     

 

 

All other fees and charges will remain unchanged.

 

The draft CRIS is now available for industry review at: http://www.casa.gov.au/costrecovery.

 

Industry members are invited to comment on the 2014-15 CRIS to the CASA Cost Recovery Team, by sending an email to [email protected]

 

Responses should be received by COB 23 April 2015.

 

Yours sincerely,

I don't know about that specifically but full cost recovery when they can spend as much as they see fit, and you have no control whatever in their policies or structure and efficiency, is a disaster.

 

'THOSE WHO PAY MUST HAVE A SAY" or no deal. Nev

So on first read thru, if you are a Flight Examiner, Flight Engineer or Part 141,142 organisation, there are new fees headed your way. And the majority of them seem to be the $/hour type. Everything else seem to be a no-change arrangement.

 

Interesting that CASA fee amounts/rates haven't been increased since 2007. Being new to this space, i would have thought they'd be upping that stuff every year linked to CPI or inflation or something.

Got to love that they intend to have in place before the responses are due back.

Beautiful! Shows what they think of public consultation, and how much weight it carries!
