Where responses are yet to be received, this may be because addressees have 90 days to respond to a Safety Recommendation.
The AAIB will keep open Safety Recommendations where it expects to receive responses from the addressee. If no further response is expected the recommendation is Closed.
A Closed status does not mean the actions for a Safety Recommendation are complete, nor that the Safety Issue has been addressed.
A ‘Not adequate’ assessment means that the response does not address the intent of the Safety Recommendation nor does it address the safety issue concerned.
A ‘Partially adequate’ assessment means the response goes someway to meeting the intent of the Safety Recommendation and the action will address the safety issue to a certain extent, but further action would be required to fully address the issue identified.
An ‘Adequate’ assessment means that the response fully meets the intent of the Safety Recommendation and the action will address the safety issue.
