ICAO Annex 13 Chapter 8 details the Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs) for incident reporting, database storage, investigation and exchange of incident data. Ireland is a signatory to the Chicago Convention and therefore Ireland has implemented the standards and recommended practices of Annex 13 through a combination of EU and national law.

Regulation (EU) 376/2014 on occurrence reporting in civil aviation, details the requirements for each EU member state on mandatory and voluntary occurrence reporting, collection and storage, exchange, dissemination and protection of information.

It is noted also that existing EU implementing regulations issued pursuant to the EASA Basic Regulation (Regulation (EC) 216/2008) also impose obligations on certain organisations to establish occurrence reporting systems.  Even though both sets of regulations must be complied with, this should not give rise to two parallel reporting systems, and Regulation (EC) No 216/2008 and its implementing regulations, should be seen as complementary to Regulation (EU) 376/2014.  The following lists the relevant regulations for illustrative purposes only and may not reflect current legislation.  Please refer to the http://easa.europa.eu/ for up to date information

  • EC Regulation 748/2012 Part 21A.165 details reporting requirements for approved production organisations.
  • EC Regulation 1321/2014 Part M.A.202 details reporting requirements for continuing airworthiness management organisations and Part 145.A.60 details reporting requirements for maintenance organisations.
