The purpose of this manual is to encourage the uniform application of the Standards and Recommended Practices contained in Annex 13 and to provide information and guidance to States on the procedures, practices and techniques that can be used in accident and incident investigations. It is issued in four parts and supersedes the Manual of Aircraft Accident Investigation (Doc 6920).


Part I of this manual has been revised and updated, and includes considerations for the establishment of an aircraft accident investigation authority in terms of its structure, legislation, funding and personnel. The planning of an investigation and the notification process for accidents and incidents are also addressed, as are the initial actions to be taken at an accident site, with particular emphasis on the safety of personnel. A directory of the accident investigation authorities in all States and their contact details are included.
