Right to Review (Appeal)

Designated officers of the Bermuda Civil Aviation Authority (BCAA) in exercising their authority may take the following action:

(a) decide that it would be inexpedient in the public interest to register an aircraft in the Territory; or

(b) refuse an application for the grant, validation or variation of a licence, certificate, approval, authorisation or rating; or

(c) decide to cancel the registration of an aircraft; or

(d) decide to revoke, suspend or vary a licence, certificate, approval, authorisation, validation or rating otherwise than on the application of the holder.  

If taking such an action the designated officer of the BCAA must serve on the person concerned a notice stating the reasons for the decision and the person concerned may, within 14 days of the date of the service of the notice, serve on the Governor a request that the decision be reviewed by the Governor.

Where such a request has been duly served the Governor must, before making a decision, consider any oral representations which may be made to the Governor or any representations in writing which may have been served upon the Governor by the person concerned within 21 days after the date of service of the request and may, before making a decision, consider the advice of such technical assessors as the Governor may appoint as advisers, provided that the Governor must not appoint as an assessor any person who participated in the decision or proposal or in giving or assessing any test or examination which is to be the subject of the Governor’s decision.

Persons requesting such a review by the Governor of the BCAA decision may contact the office of the Governor directly or provide such a request to BCAA who will forward the submission to the office of the Governor.
