Regulatory Consistency Communication Board (RCCB)

Report a potential regulatory inconsistency

The purpose of the Regulatory Consistency Communication Board (RCCB) is to provide an avenue for internal and external stakeholders to raise issues of policy or regulatory inconsistency. Issues brought to the RCCB should involve policy or regulations overseen by the Aircraft Certification Service (AIR) or the Flight Standards Service (AFS).

If you have identified a potential inconsistency that meets this definition, please submit a form to the RCCB.

For more information on the RCCB please refer to Order 8000.70, Regulatory Consistency Communication Board (RCCB) or read the frequently asked questions. You may also review a training course (PDF) or view a sample RCCB submission (PDF).

Please note that the RCCB does not address issues dealing with:

  • low flying aircraft (including UAS);
  • general questions about UAS operations;
  • questions or concerns about aviation accidents or incidents; or
  • concerns about customer service or delays on commercial airlines.

For assistance in these areas please contact the FAA.

View the Paperwork Reduction Act burden statement and Privacy Act statement for the collection of information under the RCCB.
