SRC Annual Safety Report 2016
The SRC’s 2016 Annual Safety Report builds on EUROCONTROL’s safety measurement techniques and presents enhanced trend information on the safety performance of the ATM system. In the Report, the analysis of the achieved levels of safety shows that the ECAC safety objective continues to be met for accidents with ATM contribution.
However, the noted lack of sufficient resources and qualified staff at national level allocated to the tasks in safety data collection, coding, assessment and analysis remains a priority factor of concern. It should be noted that these capabilities cannot, and will not, be quickly improvised if safety suddenly becomes a key issue in the context of new developments.
In addition to the extra effort made in the working interfaces with Member States, the SRC has also been able to maintain the robustness of the AST data validation process. Such validation is based on a direct interface with those involved at national level and the thorough and dedicated technical assessment of the data received. As a result, the SRC is in position to underline the high reliability of the AST data. It is the view of the SRC that this provides EUROCONTROL with a solid platform for further developments in the field of ATM safety analysis.
