Agreement on occurrence reporting regulation to improve aviation safety
This Regulation seeks to ensure that in cases of collection of occurrence information safety actions are taken in a timely manner, and that relevant civil aviation safety information is reported, collected, stored, protected, exchanged, disseminated and analyzed.
 
“It is very important, that aviation safety risks are considered and dealt with at European level. A high and uniform general level of safety should be ensured in civil aviation in the Union and all efforts should be made to reduce the number of accidents and incidents to ensure public confidence in aviation transport,“ said Minister of Transport of Lithuania Rimantas Sinkevičius.
 
He thanked the negotiators of the TRAN Committee of the European Parliament for their constructiveness in reaching agreement on this dossier in a timely manner. 
 
This Regulation lays down provisions on reporting of occurrences or other safety related information which endanger or which, if not corrected or addressed, would endanger an aircraft, its occupants, any other person, equipment or installation affecting aircraft operations.The objective of occurrence reporting is the prevention of accidents and incidents and not to attribute blame or liability. This Regulation aims to assist Member States, European Safety Agency (EASA) and organisations in managing aviation safety risks.
 
In the negotiations the Parliament accepted the Council compromise proposal on the delegations of power and an 18 month delayed entry into force for the whole Regulation.
