AAIB Safety Study - 1/2016
Airworthiness of aircraft registered overseas and resident in the UK.
Responses published today:
2015-039, 2015-040.

When a response is received from an addressee, we have 60 days to assess the adequacy of the response. There are three types of assessment:

  • A ‘Not adequate’ assessment means that the AAIB considers 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 AAIB considers the response goes some way 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 the AAIB considers the response fully meets the intent of the Safety Recommendation and the action is expected to address the safety issue.

Read more about how our Safety Recommendations are developed and their responses analysed.
