4.4 Provision for investigation of incidents and accidents
Regulatory objective: Provide means to support the investigation of incidents and accidents that may occur when operating the RAS.
Contextual description: It is important to be able to learn from incidents and accidents in order that they can be prevented from happening again (the risk reduced). This may require that measures are put in place to facilitate this investigation. For RAS, this will often require that investigators (a) have access to data generated by the RAS prior to the accident and (b) are able to interpret that data to determine the causes of the accident or incident. This may result in additional requirements on the RAS to implement a suitable information collection mechanism.
Practical guidance: To be determined.
