The key objective of Voluntary Occurrence Reporting is to enhance aviation safety through the collection of reports on actual or potential safety deficiencies that would otherwise not be reported through other channels or that may appear minor, but which nevertheless can allow others to learn from the reporter’s experience and even lead to changes in procedures, practices or design.

Such reports may involve occurrences, hazards or threats relevant to aviation safety. This Reporting System focuses on systems, human factors, procedures, facilities, services and equipment, rather than on individuals.

  2. There is no other appropriate reporting procedure or channel.
  3. You have tried another reporting procedure or channel but the issue has not been addressed.
