ACAG is a representative industry body that provides advice to us on issues affecting aviation safety and the aviation operating environment.

ACAG functions include:

  • Identification of regulatory issues that need to be addressed
  • Advice on issue priorities
  • Technical expertise and input during the issue assessment process
  • Advice on implementation of both regulatory and non-regulatory options and solutions to issues.

The ACAG membership reflects the range of interests in the aviation community and includes both permanent members provided by representative organisations and elected members from the aviation community.
