The work of the Transport Accident Investigation Commission is continuing as normal, as much as practicable during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Commission continues to focus on improving transport safety through the determination of circumstances and causes of accidents and incidents.
The Commission’s inquiry processes are the same as usual -- including receiving accident notifications, gathering and analysing information and evidence, making decisions and publishing reports.
The Commission is liaising on a case by case basis with people who need additional time to provide information. In some cases there may be some investigation delays.
With TAIC's physical offices closed, all staff are working remotely. Staff are already well practiced at this and the Commission has resilient systems in place.
If you had meetings scheduled with TAIC staff, they will be in touch to continue to meet using suitable technology such as phone or online meetings.
Should you have a questions relating to TAIC’s operations during the pandemic, please use the email contact form here: www.taic.org.nz/contact-us (5 days a week, office hours) or in emergency +64 4 473 3112.
