Safety Matters 03/2020 - Occurrence Reporting

The Isle of Man Aircraft Registry's Safety Matters No: 03/20 has now been published.

This issue of Safety Matters focuses on the new occurrence reporting requirements for aircraft registered in the Isle of Man, and gives guidance on how to comply. The Civil Aviation (Occurrence Reporting) Order 2020 (which was open to public consultation during 2019) meets the latest requirements of ICAO Annex 19.

It also incorporates the current investigation processes which have been previously specified in Registry Publication 5 (RP5) and includes the following key amended/new requirements:


  • ‘Safety Data and Information Protection’ is now enacted in law;


  • Mandatory Occurrence Reports (MOR) must now be submitted within 72 hours of the person becoming aware of the occurrence.
RP5 has been updated to incorporate the new occurrence reporting requirements.
