Singapore Establishes Confidential Reporting Program

 - December 14, 2007, 10:14 AM

Singapore has established a program for pilots, air traffic controllers, mechanics and others to report aviation safety incidents confidentially and without fear of prosecution for inadvertent regulatory violations. Called Sincair (for Singapore confidential aviation incident reporting), the program is similar to the NASA-operated Aviation Safety Reporting System (ASRS) in the U.S. and programs operating in the UK, Australia and Canada. To learn more about Sincair and obtain a reporting form, go to www.mot.gov.sg/sincair.htm.
