International Accident Investigations


This Fact Sheet explains how accident investigation participating States are determined, as well as the process leading to the issuance of an accident investigation Preliminary Report (within 30 days of the event) and Final Report (asap or within 12 months of the event) following completion of the investigation.


Final Reports ultimately provide as much official information as possible on an accident’s contributing causes and factors, as well as any official recommendations on how applicable aviation safety frameworks should be amended in the future.


ICAO does not normally participate in aircraft accident investigations, except when the State or States with due authority under Annex 13—Accident Investigation request its assistance directly. In those exceptional circumstances, said assistance normally involves ICAO acting as an official observer and/or clarifying various Annex 13 technical requirements when requested.
