The SRS is an independent, confidential, voluntary, and non-punitive reporting system. It also complies with the mandatory reporting requirements, since it is recognized by AESA and its national mandatory reporting system to process occurrences under Spanish legislation.


Who is required to report and who may report?

Commanders, ATCOs, maintenance personnel, etc., and persons or organizations that, while performing their duties, have knowledge of any occurrence.

Directive CE/2003/42 - RD 1334/2005

Furthermore, professionals (co-pilots, flight attendants, etc..), persons or organizations related to aviation can report to this system. Additionally, this regulation encourages all professionals to report to enhance safety.


¿Why should you report?

When you report you comply with a legal requirement, you obtain immunity and protection against possible sanctions by the authority, organization, or airline.

We promote a proactive and predictive safety culture,  by detecting threats before incidents or accidents occur.


Your collaboration and involvement are of paramount importance.


What can be reported to the SRS?

All voluntary and compulsory occurrences. An occurrence is an operational interruption, defect, fault or any other irregular circumstance that has had or made have had an impact on aviation safety.


What are the advantages? 

The SEPLA Reporting System has a team that advises, collects, classifies, de-identifies and helps the reporter drafting the report  and sending it to all parties involved (airlines, authorities, etc). Once the reports are introduced into the database they are destroyed within a 15-30 day period.  This ensures the confidentiality of reporters, and other than complying with their obligation to report, they become protected from being punished.

How do you report?

The SRS provides four channels for reporting:


Any occurrence included in this list should be reported if any of the following conditions apply:

If it puts at risk or, if not corrected, could put at risk the safety of the aircraft or people. Even if it has not put at risk the safety of the operation, it could create a hazard if repeated under different circumstances; particularly, if the absence or presence of a single factor, human or technical, could transform  an event into a minor incident, serious incident or accident .
