Changing your name
If you're an individual and are changing your name or the spelling of your name that's recorded on your ARN, you'll need to let us know in writing and supply supporting documentation. You can't use your self service account to make this change.
Following is a brief guide in relation to CASA's requirements - for further detail please ring CLARC on 131 757.
- If you believe we've recorded your name incorrectly, please forward a copy of your passport or birth certificate along with a covering letter. Please include details of any licences and certificates which may require reissue.
- If you've changed your name, you'll need to provide evidence that the change has been registered. This will depend on where, when and how your name was changed, but it's likely that you'll need to supply a registration certificate issued by a state government body.
You can contact the our Licensing and Registration Centre (CLARC) on 131 757 to find out more.
Organisations who need to advise us of a change of name should call the CASA Service Centre on 131 757.
Aircraft registration holders
- If you're an aircraft registration holder or registered operator you can change your personal details using your self service account.
- Form 030 should be used by the registration holder to notify the Australian Civil Aircraft Register under CASR 47.115 of a change in aircraft details.
- Use form 032 to let us know about an appointment or cancellation of a registered operator under CASR Part 47, rather than just a change to a name or address.
- Use form 027 to transfer ownership.
- The civil aircraft register will issue a new certificate of registration as required by relevant changes.
