ICAO Circular 202-AN/123 FOREWORD General 1. The purpose of the Aircraft Accident Digest is to disseminate accident report information to Contracting States. Publication of the Digest began in 1951. Over the years States have reiterated their interest in the Digest not ony 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-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 and c compliance with Annex 13 provisions including the format of the Final Report. The Digest should not be seen as being statistically representative of the world distribution of accidents. Editorial practices 3 The Final Reports are usually published as received. Accordingly, some deviations from standard ICAO editorial practices may occur. Lengthy reports may be abbreviated by omitting redundant information, appendices, attachments or diagrams. Minor changes in presentation and terminology may be introduced to ensure compliance with Annex 13 provisions. 4. States are encouraged to send to ICAO those Final Reports which meet the criteria of 6.14 in Annex 13. The reports must be submitted in one of the working languages of ICAO, and in the format presented in the Appendix to Annex 13. Digest publication 5. The Digest is produced once each year and includes accidents and incidents which occurred during a one-year period.
