The Commission reports regularly on progress being made by recipients in implementing the Commission's recommendations.
About this reporting series
The Recommendations Reports are part of the government transport sector’s collaborative reporting system, compiled by TAIC on behalf of the heads of the transport sector regulators (Civil Aviation Authority, Maritime NZ, and NZ Transport Agency). Links to these reports are in the Document Downloads section on this page.
The reports update the Minister for Transport how transport sector regulators are addressing TAIC’s recommendations to help avoid accidents and incidents in the future. The reports also assure the sector and wider public that safety recommendations are being addressed, and improve transparency.
The regulators are in the strongest position to influence transport operators to take practical action to improve safety. Their influence tools include:
- Compulsion to follow rules or regulations
- Education to raise awareness of safety issues
- Persuasion to implement safety-focused actions.
