ESARR 2 - Reporting and Assessment of Safety Occurrences in ATM
ESARR 2 mandates the implementation of a harmonised occurrence reporting and assessment scheme by EUROCONTROL member states. ECAC member states who are not members of EUROCONTROL are also encouraged to apply it.
The requirement promotes a consistent and systematic reporting and assessment process, encourages the establishment of a non-punitive environment and is designed to act as an effective contribution to accident and serious risk bearing incident prevention.
ESARR 2 defines:
- Requirements on the main phases of the occurrence reporting and assessment process: occurrence reporting; data collection, data analysis, risk classification, recommendation formulation; recommendation implementation and monitoring; safety data and experience exchange.
- The ATM-related occurrences which shall, as a minimum, be reported and assessed by States.
- The minimum appropriate safety data which shall be collated and reported to EUROCONTROL by States, expressed in terms of high level safety indicators.
- Harmonised terms and definitions.
Severity Classification Schemes
Severity classification schemes for ATM related occurrences are developed in a companion document to ESARR 2 (see below) to enable its implementation by national regulatory and service provider organisation. The schemes allow:
- Classification of occurrences according to the severity of their effect on the safe operations of aircraft and occupants; and
- Classification of occurrences according to the severity of their effect on the ability to provide safe ATM services.
Implementation of ESARR 2 by service providers and States will enable:
- Assessment of safety performance against performance targets and related trends over time.
- Identification of key risk area to act upon.
- Identification of ATM system contribution to all types of safety occurrences.
- Identification of risk reduction strategies, approaches and measures.
Transposition into Community Law
The majority of ESARR 2 requirments has been transposed into European Community law by the following Directives:
- Regulation (EU) No 376/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 3 April 2014 on the reporting, analysis and follow-up of occurrences in civil aviation, amending Regulation (EU) No 996/2010 of the European Parliament and of the Council and repealing Directive 2003/42/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council and Commission Regulations (EC) No 1321/2007 and (EC) No 1330/2007, and
- Council Directive 94/56/EC of 21 November 1994 establishing the fundamental principles governing the investigation of civil aviation accidents and incidents.
