ICAO Circular 173-AN1109 FOREWORD General 1. The purpose of the Aircraft Accident Digest is to disseminate accident report information to all Contracting States. Publication of the Digest began in 1951. Over the years States have reiterated their interest in the Digest not only as a valuable source of information for accident prevention, but also as a training aid for investigators and educational material for technical schools. Selection of Accidents 2. The Digest contains accident reports which have been selected by the Secretariat from those sent by States. Reports were selected on the basis of a their contribution to accident prevention or b the successful employment of useful or effective investigative techniques or c number of fatalities. It should not be seen as being statistically representative of the world distribution of accidents. 3. The Final Reports are usually published as received. However, lengthy reports may be abbreviated by omitting from the "Factual Information" any information which is also detailed in the "Analysis", or by deleting Appendices. States' Co-operation 4. States are encouraged to send to ICAO those Final Reports which meet the criteria in Annex 13, 6.14. The reports must be submitted in one of the working languages of ICAO, and in the format presented in the Appendix to Annex 13. Thus they contain the following parts Factual Information, Analysis, Conclusions and Safety Recommendations. The accident causes are included in the conclusions.
