Occurrence reporting in Iceland is governed by European Regulation 376/2014 (transposed in Iceland 900/2017 ). It requires the reporting, analysis and follow up of occurrences in civil aviation and delivers a European Just Culture Declaration.

An occurrence means any safety-related event which endangers or which, if not corrected or addressed, could endanger an aircraft, its occupants or any other person.

The purpose of occurrence reporting is to improve aviation safety by ensuring that relevant safety information relating to civil aviation is reported, collected, stored, protected, exchanged, disseminated and analyzed. It is not to attribute blame or liability. This delivers a European Just Culture Declaration.

Under the regulation, occurrence information can only be used to maintain or improve aviation safety. This means that occurrence information can't be released to the general public or to the media.
