Australia’s Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) increased the fees it charges for various services on July 1, but it also lowered some fees. According to a CASA statement, “CASA is obliged to recover costs for regulatory services in line with the Australian Government’s cost-recovery policy.” Fees for issuing private, commercial and air transport licenses are lower, and the agency reduced a total of 22 fixed fees. CASA added two new hourly rates and increased two existing hourly rates. Fees for 23 services do not change, according to the agency, which said that it consulted extensively with the aviation industry on proposed fee changes. CASA received nearly 200 written submissions in the first round of consultations, followed by an additional 100 later in the process.
