Results of the investigation

If essential results of the investigation are available which are important for accident prevention and which require immediate measures, the STSB draws up an interim report before the investigation is concluded, for the attention of the FOCA.

The investigation concludes with a report. The draft report is submitted to the parties and organisations concerned and the FOCA, with a period of 60 days for comments. If necessary, the draft of the final report includes safety recommendations to the competent authorities.

The Aviation Division of the STSB takes into consideration the comments and proposals of the parties and organisations making comments and of the FOCA, in so far as these are legitimate and justified. The resulting final report is reviewed and approved by the board.

Finally, the final report is published on the STSB's website and supplied to STSB subscribers in printed form.
