The Cayman Islands is not a signatory (or a party by extension from the UK) to the Rome
Convention, the Geneva Convention or the Chicago Convention. It is now a party to the
Convention on International Interests in Mobile Equipment and the associated Protocol to the Convention on International Interests in Mobile Equipment on matters specific to aircraft equipment (collectively, the Cape Town Convention).
In relation to the Chicago Convention, however, certain provisions of that Convention with which the United Kingdom is obliged to ensure that its overseas territories (including Cayman) comply are reflected in the Air Navigation (Overseas Territories) Order 2013 and Overseas Territories Aviation Requirements, applicable in Cayman.
The Cayman Islands is, by Order-in-Council from the United Kingdom, a party to the New York Convention.
