AVIATION SAFETY REPORTING SISTEM (USA)

The ASRS collects, analyzes, and responds to voluntarily submitted aviation safety incident reports in order to lessen the likelihood of aviation accidents. ASRS data are used to: Identify deficiencies and discrepancies in the National Aviation System (NAS) so that these can be remedied by appropriate authorities. Support policy formulation and planning for, and improvements to, the NAS. Strengthen the foundation of aviation human factors safety research. This is particularly important since it is generally conceded that over two-thirds of all aviation accidents and incidents have their roots in human performance errors.

EUROPEAN COMMERCIAL AVIATION SAFETY TEAM, ECAST

ECAST addresses large fixed wing aircraft operations, and aims to further enhance commercial aviation safety in Europe, and for European citizen worldwide. It was launched in October 2006. ECAST is a partnership between EASA, other European regulators and the aviation industry. ECAST is based on the principle that industry can complement regulatory action by voluntary committing to cost effective safety enhancements. ECAST cooperates with US CAST and with other major safety initiatives worldwide, in particular the ICAO Regional Aviation Safety Group (RASG) and Cooperative Development of Operational Safety and Continuing Airworthiness Programme (COSCAP). The ECAST Plenary leads the initiative and take strategic decisions for the Team. The Plenary allocates work to the working-groups and review and approve the deliverables.

EUROPEAN AVIATION SAFETY AGENCY, EASA

The European Aviation Safety Agency is the centrepiece of the European Union's strategy for aviation safety. Our mission is to promote the highest common standards of safety and environmental protection in civil aviation. Air transport is one of the safest forms of travel. As air traffic continues to grow a common initiative is needed at the European level to keep air transport safe and sustainable. The Agency develops common safety and environmental rules at the European level. It monitors the implementation of standards through inspections in the Member States and provides the necessary technical expertise, training and research. The Agency works hand in hand with the national authorities which continue to carry out many operational tasks, such as certification of individual aircraft or licensing of pilots.

EUROPEAN HELICOPTER SAFETY TEAM, EHEST

Launched on November 2006, the European Helicopter Safety Team (EHEST) brings together manufacturers, operators, research organisations, regulators, accident investigators and a few military operators from across Europe. EHEST is the helicopter branch of the ESSI, and also the European component of the International Helicopter Safety Team (IHST). We are committed to contribute to the goal of reducing the helicopter accident rate by 80 percent by 2016 worldwide, with emphasis on improving European safety.

AVIATION SAFETY INVESTIGATIONS AND REPORTS, ATSB

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) is Australia's prime agency for the independent investigation of civil aviation accidents, incidents and safety deficiencies. The ATSB is governed by a Commission and is entirely separate from transport policy makers, industry operators, and from transport regulators such as the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA).
In the aviation transport mode, the ATSB conducts 'no blame' aviation safety investigations in accordance with the Transport Safety Investigation Act 2003 (TSI Act). The ATSB does not investigate for the purpose of taking administrative, regulatory or criminal action.
Annex 13 (Aircraft Accident and Incident Investigation) to the Convention on International Civil Aviation (Chicago Convention 1944) prescribes international principles for aircraft accident and incident investigation, and the provisions of the TSI Act are designed to reflect those principles.

MANDATORY OCCURRENCE REPORTING, SKYBRARY

The objective is to facilitate collection and exchange of information on actual or potential safety hazards and deficiencies and contribute to the prevention of aircraft accidents.
SKYbrary is an electronic repository of safety knowledge related to ATM and aviation safety in general. It is also a portal, a common entry point, that enables users to access the safety data made available on the websites of various aviation organisations - regulators, service providers, industry.
SKYbrary adopts the concept of Media-wiki products - anyone can comment, propose modification to an existing article, suggest a new topic or submit a draft article. However, there is an important difference that distinguishes SKYbrary from other wikies. A robust content management and control process supported by appropriate user rights management ensures the needed quality, credibility and consistency of stored safety data.
