2. Current status

Investigating - this means an investigation is being carried out which will lead to a published report.

Safety digest - following our preliminary examination, we have decided not to undertake a full investigation and are preparing a safety digest.

Consulting - when an investigation is largely complete a draft copy of the report is sent to interested parties for comment. This process can take some time.

Interim report published – sometimes a complex investigation can take longer than usual or our investigation can reveal issues we wish to highlight prior to publishing our full report. In such cases we may release an interim report.

Complete - when we are working on a joint investigation with another National Investigating Body (NIB), our part of the investigation may be complete before the final report is published.
