It operates with:
- regulations 262AN and 262AM of the Civil Aviation Regulations 1988

It sets out:
- the conditions under which various limited category aircraft operations may be conducted
- the responsibilities of persons involved in limited category aircraft operations
- the offences that relate to breaching the conditions for limited category aircraft operations.
