ESARR 2 - Reporting and Assessment of Safety Occurrences in ATM

ESARR 2 covers the implementation by States of an Occurrence Reporting and Assessment Scheme for Air Traffic Management (ATM) safety.

It defines a list of ATM-related occurrences which shall, as a minimum, be reported and assessed by States (Appendix A), the minimum appropriate safety data which shall be collated and reported to EUROCONTROL by States, expressed in terms of high-level safety indicators (Appendix B) and includes a glossary of terms with harmonised definitions (Appendix C).
