The Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport will carry out pre-legislative scrutiny of the General Scheme of the Irish Aviation Authority (Amendment) Bill 2017 at its meeting tomorrow, Wednesday, 22 November 2017.

Committee Chair, Deputy Fergus O’Dowd said: “Tomorrow, we will carry out pre-legislative scrutiny of the General Scheme of the Irish Aviation Authority (Amendment) Bill 2017 when we will meet with Andrea Lennon and Ronan Gallagher from the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport and James Gavin from the Irish Aviation Authority. The Bill aims to amend the Irish Aviation Authority Act 1997 to extend the existing powers of the IAA, with regard to its safety regulation function and to recoup costs through fees and charges for its aviation security regulation functions. It will also provide for the recognition of the IAA's role in compliance monitoring under Annex 17 of the Chicago Convention which deals with security of civil aviation.”

Before this meeting starts, the Committee will carry out scrutiny of EU legislative proposals:

Schedule A: COM(2017)548 (Rail Passengers’ Rights and Obligations)
