Safety Recommendations

At any stage of an investigation the AAIU may identify a preventative action that it considers necessary to be taken promptly to enhance aviation safety.  This is achieved through a safety recommendation (SR). Timeliness is an essential part of the safety recommendation process.

As a result the AAIU may issue an Interim SR as soon as a very serious safety issue is identified, without waiting for an accident investigation to be completed and the probable cause determined.  Final Reports may contain SR’s that seek to enhance aviation safety in general.

An SR shall in no case create a presumption of blame or liability for an occurence.
