Eurocontrol: Lack of ‘just culture’ leads to poor incident reporting
30 May 2006

Eurocontrol`s efforts to reduce air traffic management (ATM)-related fatalities are being hampered by the lack of a `just culture` in most member states, leaving risks to go undetected until they are exposed by an accident. Although Eurocontrol set up a centralised ATM incident reporting and data sharing system several years ago, safety chiefs are convinced it is not working. They believe the failure of many European countries to protect the safety data reporting systems, and those who submit reports, from the law means that no-one dare use them. (Flight International)
