Naming organisations in reports

AIB Ghana policy provides for identifying most organisations in its Aviation safety investigations. Most organisations directly involved in any aviation occurrence investigated by the AIB Ghana are identified in the report and on the investigation web page.

The policy ensures the AIB Ghana’s compliance with the International Civil Aviation Organization’s standard and recommended practices. It also ensures that the AIB Ghana has a consistent and transparent approach across all of its aviation safety investigations.

Operators and other organisations can be assured that it is not a function of the AIB Ghana to apportion blame or determine liability. Including the name of the organisation does not imply any adverse inferences.

Which organisations are identified

For aviation, all operators and regulators are identified.

Other large organisations that contributed substantively to the occurrence will also be mentioned. The exception to the above policy will be where the operator is an individual or an individual’s name is the company name. Consistent with the Aircraft Accident and Incident Investigation and Prevention Act 1028, the AIB Ghana does not name individuals in its final reports.

Are there any exceptions?

If an operator or organisation had a passive or third-party involvement in an occurrence, the AIB Ghana will not name that operator in the investigation report or published information.

Operators and other organisations will not be named in investigation report titles.

This policy applies to safety occurrences investigated by the AIB Ghana from October 2020. Any incident or accident that occurred before October 2020 was treated under the previous policy.


How will an organisation know if they’re named?

The AIB Ghana provides advance copies of its investigation reports to all organisations involved in a transport safety occurrence. This ensures organisations are aware of, and have the opportunity to provide feedback on, the report’s contents before it is made public.
