Article 7(1) of The Air Navigation (Overseas Territories) Order 2013, AN(OT)O (the Order) as amended, gives effect to the Convention on International Civil Aviation requiring the Governor to ensure that the Annexes to the Convention are complied with. Thereafter, Article 7(2)(d) requires the Governor to provide or secure an aeronautical information service whilst Article 7(3) requires the provision of an Aeronautical Information Publication for the Territory.
Consequently, Article 7 of the Order identifies the requirement for the provision of an AIS and for its regulation under Annex 15. In addition, ASSI have published OTAR 175,176 and 177 which provide additional regulation of AIS and associated service/products.
In addition, OTAR 139.33 (b) (6)(ii) specifies that for an aerodrome to be certified, appropriate arrangements must be in place for the provisions of the Aeronautical Information Service.
