New regulation on reporting safety incidents has become applicable

Since November 15, Regulation (EU) 376/2014 is applicable to aviation professionals, organisations, Member States and the Agency. This regulation brings specific requirements to all aviation stakeholders on the reporting of occurrences and its subsequent processing and analysis. Especially for the Agency, this regulation implies taking up new roles and responsibilities in this regard, but it also enables to have access to better information in order to address global safety challenges. In particular, gaining full access to the European Central Repository (ECR) will give the Agency the opportunity to draw a more accurate safety picture of the European aviation system.
