DISCUSSION Guidance on establishment of functionally independent accident investigation bodies 2.1 Arising from a discussion at the APAC-AIG/3 on the need for more guidance from ICAO as to how a State/Administration can demonstrate the independence of its accident investigation agency, the APRAST/7 adopted the following: Decision APRAST 7/4: That, APAC-AIG further develop practical guidance on the establishment of a functionally independent accident investigation body, including development of templates, model processes, and procedures on drawing on resources for the establishment of the accident investigation body. (...) The ICAO Headquarters has replied that an accident investigation unit that is within the State civil aviation authority will not be regarded as an independent accident investigation authority. (...) Code of Conduct on Cooperation Relating to Civil Aviation Accident/Incident Investigation 2.11 The Asia-Pacific Code of Conduct on Cooperation Relating to Civil Aviation Accident/Incident Investigation (CoC) was developed to promote mutual cooperation in accident/incident investigation in the APAC region but is not meant to be legally binding.

Due to the possible release of dioxins many were reminded of the Seveso accident of 1976 in Italy. The Leverkusen accident is a tragic reminder of the continuous need to prevent major industrial accidents and, should they occur, to be well-prepared to quickly respond to them. (...) To communicate quickly and efficiently in case of a transboundary threat or accident, UNECE member States can use the Industrial Accidents Notification (IAN) System to warn potentially affected countries about an accident or request mutual assistance. (...) Notes to editors Since its signature in 1992 and entry into force in 2000, the  UNECE Convention on the Transboundary Effects of Industrial Accidents   provides a legal framework for countries to develop and strengthen prevention of, preparedness for and response to industrial accidents, including such accidents with possible transboundary effects.

MID-SST/2-WP/4 05/10/2015 International Civil Aviation Organization MID Safety Support Team Second Meeting (MID-SST/2) (Cairo, Egypt, 27-29 October 2015) Agenda Item 2: MID-SST Work Programme DEVELOPMENT OF AN ADDITIONAL DIP RELATED TO THE IMPROVEMENT OF REGIONAL COOPERATION FOR THE PROVISION OF ACCIDENT & INCIDENT INVESTIGATION (Presented by the Secretariat) SUMMARY The RASG-MID/4 meeting tasked the MID-STT to develop a DIP related to the improvement of regional cooperation for the provision of Accident & Incident Investigation. (...) A Progress Report on the subject should be presented to the DGCA-MID/4 meeting in 2017. 2.4 The DGCA-MID/3 meeting noted with appreciation the UAE’s contribution for an improved coordination of Accident and Incident Investigation activities between the MID and ACAC States including the organization of three Workshops between 2012 and 2013 that led to the establishment of the Middle East and North Africa Society of Air Safety Investigators (MENASASI) in August 2013, as well as the MOUs singed with Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan and Sudan covering cooperation in all aspects of Accident Investigation including training and sharing of information and expertise. (...) ACTION BY THE MEETING 3.1 The meeting is invited to develop a DIP with deliverables, timeframe and responsibilities related to the improvement of regional cooperation for the provision of Accident & Incident Investigation. -------------- MID-SST/2-WP/4 APPENDIX A APPENDIX A STRATEGY FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT OF RAIOs FOR THE ACAC AND ICAO MID MEMBER STATES Whereas it is incumbent on the State in which an accident occurs to institute an inquiry into the circumstances of the accident in conformity with Article 26 of the Convention; Whereas Assembly Resolution A36-10, inter-alia: - urges Contracting States to undertake every effort to enhance accident prevention measures, particularly in the areas of personnel training, information feedback and analysis and to implement voluntary and non-punitive reporting systems, so as to meet the new challenges in managing flight safety, posed by the anticipated growth and complexity of civil aviation; - urges Contracting States to cooperate with ICAO and other States in a position to do so, in the development and implementation of accident prevention measures designed to integrate skills and resources to achieve a consistently high level of safety throughout civil aviation; Whereas, owing to the growing sophistication and complexity of modern aircraft, the conduct of an accident investigation requires participation by experts from many specialized technical and operational fields and access to specially equipped facilities for investigation; Whereas many Contracting States do not have such specialized technical and operational expertise and appropriate facilities; Whereas the costs of salvage and investigation of major aircraft accidents may place a heavy financial burden on the resources of the State where the accident occurred; Whereas Assembly Resolution A37-15 (Appendix U), recommends that Contracting States cooperate in the investigation of major aircraft accidents or accidents in which the investigation requires highly specialized experts and facilities; Whereas, the ICAO Universal Safety Oversight Audit Programme (USOAP) audit findings indicate that a number of States have not been able to implement an effective accident and incident investigation system for their aviation activities; Recognizing that the USOAP findings have been associated, in general, with a lack of resources (both human and financial), lack of appropriate legislation and regulations, lack of an organization for the investigation of accidents and incidents, lack of a training system for investigators, lack of equipment to conduct investigations and lack of policies, procedures and guidelines for accident and incident investigations; Recognizing that combined with the expected increase in air transport operations, the relatively unchanged trend in the accident rate over the past several years might lead to an increase in the number of accidents per year; Recognizing that there are many challenges to effective accident prevention, and that more effective identification and correction of aviation hazards and system deficiencies are required in order to MID-SST/2-WP/4 APPENDIX A A-2 complement regulatory efforts in further reducing the number of worldwide accidents and to improve the accident rate; Recognizing that a regional investigation system can provide economies of scale by allowing for the sharing of required resources, and that by working together States of a region or sub-region can have a more persuasive voice on the world stage and can help secure a more favorable climate aimed at a safer international air transportation system; Acknowledging that during the last AIG Divisional Meeting (2008) several States highlighted that, in regions where individual States do not have investigation capability, implementing a regional accident and incident investigation organization (RAIO) would ensure the effectiveness of investigations, reinforce compliance with the provisions of Annex 13, and contribute to the enhancement of aviation safety; Considering that it is important for States willing to establish a RAIO to formulate a strategy that is well- defined in terms of purpose, objectives, result indicators, and that prior to the establishment of a RAIO, States must commit to fully support it in all aspects, including the adoption of joint policies, procedures and adequate funding; Recalling that a Model Agreement contained in ICAO Doc 9946−Manual on Regional Accident and Incident Investigation Organization, provides guidance for States when establishing a RAIO; The Strategy for regional cooperation for the purpose of enhancing States’ capabilities for accident and incidents investigation is detailed below: Based on the agreement in principle (DGCA-MID/1 Conclusion 1/9) to move towards regional/sub- regional cooperation for AIG activities: 1) States are urged to develop and further strengthen regional/sub-regional cooperation for accidents and incidents investigation; 2) States are encouraged to establish or strengthen dialogue with established regional investigation- related bodies/mechanisms; 3) a phased approach should be followed for the implementation of regional/sub-regional cooperation for AIG activities, in accordance with the following : Stage A : Step 1: Each State should determine its investigation-related competencies and share this information with other involved States, including: o Premises – offices, work-spaces, wreckage storage and examination areas; o Investigators – qualifications, experience, specialized skills; o Equipment – flight recorder readout and analysis facilities; field investigation equipment; engineering and scientific capabilities, wreckage and systems examination and analysis (e.g. metallurgy, electronics, composites); MID-SST/2-WP/4 APPENDIX A A-3 o Other organizations and facilities that have competencies to assist the State in its investigations, such as, research institutions, commercial companies and subject- matter experts.
