How do I submit an EASA Confidential Safety Report?
Reports on suspected malpractices and irregularities should be submitted by completing the online Confidential Safety Reporting form. Please do not send the same or similar correspondence to any other EASA email addresses and please note that the size of documents attached should not exceed 10 MB.
After submitting a report you may be asked for additional information or clarification. Therefore, please ensure that this email address remains active throughout the entire process.
Information that falls within EASA’s remit, as set by Regulation (EU) 2018/1139, is registered and de-identified (so that you remain anonymous), unless you have agreed to disclose your personal data. EASA’s Confidential Safety Reporting team will ensure the completeness, integrity and confidentiality of the information processed and will prevent access thereto by non-authorised staff members. Your e-mail address and personal details will not be disclosed to anyone outside the EASA Confidential Safety Reporting team. Information and information about your identity will be kept confidential and protected in accordance with the applicable legal framework (Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 on public access to documents and Regulation (EU) 2018/1725 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data by the Union Institutions, bodies, offices and agencies and on the free movement of such data).
After de-identification, the information is forwarded to the relevant technical unit for review.
In case EASA concludes that the reported matter falls under the oversight of an EU Member State’s or a third-country’s aviation competent authority, EASA will inform you accordingly and the information you provided will be transmitted to the competent authority for further follow-up.
