EU 376/2014: Who Decides?
Event Review Boards & Board of Appeal
by Rudy Pont
As explained throughout this special edition of the Cockpit Flash, BeCA strongly supports the new regulation and believes that it is a powerful piece of legislation that will contribute to the improvement of flight safety – provided we, as the first contributors of the system, feed the report database. However, as every law, it is not perfect. Although the new regulation puts plenty of emphasis on Just Culture (it is mentioned 11 times!) and the protection of the reporter, it does not describe HOW this should be implemented. In other words there is currently no guidance on determining the ‘line in the sand’ between intentional violation and a no-blame error.
