Amendments to the Commission Proposal for a Regulation on Investigation and Prevention of Accidents and Incidents in Civil Aviation

The European Cockpit Association (ECA), together with the International Federation of Air Traffic Controllers’ Associations (IFATCA), has been extremely active since the European Commission has proposed a new comprehensive Regulation on Accident Investigation to revise Directive 94/56/EC in order to voice the pilots’ and controllers’ community views and concerns. As the legislative process has now entered into a crucial phase, the two organisations have decided to promote a limited number of amendments which are the main changes needed to guarantee the independence of the safety investigation from judicial proceedings and the protection of sensitive safety data.
