Accident Analysis & Prevention (AAP)

The AAP Committee ensures that safety investigation activities result in the development of prevention strategies that contribute to improved levels of safety. To achieve this, the Committee assesses the timely publication of final reports of accidents and their compliance with ICAO Annex 13, monitors the implementation of any safety recommendations, identifies and communicates unsafe trends, and actively promotes the development of non-punitive safety programmes.
