Electronic Occurrence Reporting (EOR)
This information is for those organisations who wish to report occurrences to the CAA by electronic means.
The requirements for Mandatory Occurrence Reporting (MOR) are laid out in Part 12 of the Civil Aviation Rules with additional information in Advisory Circular AC12-1.
Both the Rule and AC state that the detail for an Accident or Incident shall be sent to the CAA on form CA005; or by a means acceptable to the Authority. In AC12-1, paragraph 11.3 states:
“Organisations may wish to use an incident detail form designed to meet their own requirements or communication system. In such cases the format should, as far as possible, follow the general format of the CA005 detail form in order to facilitate data capture. Organisations must consult with the Authority when proposing an alternative system to ensure that it is acceptable to the Authority.”
Any organisation wishing to use this EOR specification as a means of compliance will need to:
- Notify the CAA of their intentions either directly or through an agent acting on their behalf;
- have it accepted in principle; and
- have the interface tested and accepted.
This specification does not address what data is stored in which fields nor does it attempt to define the data from an aviation perspective.
The specification consists of a series of XML schema that define the structure that the CAA web service accepts. These schema define the physical attributes of the fields, field names, data types, field lengths etc.
Schema will change from time to time as the Authority’s data management requirements change. These changes will be published on this site sufficiently ahead of their effective date to enable system users to make changes to their reporting systems.
