AQON - 15.

Question 15 to CASA.
Q) Sen Xenophon - "Given that the ATSB is proposing to give CASA unlimited access to mandatory reports made by industry. etc."

A) CASA is not seeking unlimited access to mandatory reports made by industry. etc.
Off the top of a file of 16 similar letters to various operators:-

"Instrument NRD 017/11 issued 4 March 2011
3 Direction
The operator is directed to revise the Operator's Manual to:
  • Provide detailed instructions to compel operational staff to submit reports to the ATSB in accordance with the Transport Safety Investigation Act and Regulations 2003 and provide guidance to staff on when such reports are required.
  • Instruct operational staff to include CASA as a recipient of a copy these reports within the same time frame where possible.
my bold
I cant find the link now, perhaps someone could oblige, there was statement published explaining why CASA insisted on this, as policy; but I can't lay my hand on it. (DAS or Gibson ?? memory still good, crap filing system).

This one happened to be of interest as it's issued and signed by the same chap who seems to have just a small conflict of interest situation with Hardy 's. Which is a long story for another day.
