In accordance with Art. 20 ANA, all incidents, serious incidents and accidents involving manned and unmanned aircraft falling under Art. 4 Regulation (EU) No. 376/2014 must be reported via the reporting portal to the Federal Office of Civil Aviation (FOCA) within 72 hours of notification. The FOCA has produced a guide for general aviation (GA) on how to use the reporting portal.
In accordance with Art. 23 of the Air Navigation Act (ANA) in conjunction with Art. 17 of the Ordinance on the Safety Investigation of Transport Incidents (OSITI), accidents and serious incidents involving manned aircraft on Swiss territory, or involving aircraft registered in Switzerland which occur abroad, must be reported immediately to the STSB reporting office.
In case of doubt, STSB should be informed by telephone (1414 in Switzerland, +41 333 333 333 from abroad). The duty investigator will immediately make contact and decide on the further course of action.
