Under Singapore’s regulations, responsible persons must report aviation-related occurrences, such as aircraft accidents, serious incidents, and reportable safety matters. The submission of such mandatory reports is to be made through SAIRS.
Accident/incident data and safety information submitted through SAIRS are collated and analysed, enabling the monitoring of Singapore’s aviation safety trends, and allowing mitigation plans to be developed and implemented to prevent future occurrences.
