‘Aviation Safety Council’ Officially Becomes an Independent Organization with the Enactment of ‘Organization Act for Aviation Safety Council’
The successive flight accidents occurred since the beginning of 1998 had caused great damage to numerous lives and properties, which also struck national aviation developments severely. To improve flight safety and to avoid accidents from reoccurring, the Executive Yuan established ‘Aviation Safety Council’ on May 25th, 1998 to perform duties specialized on aviation occurrence identification, occurrence investigation, and occurrence probable cause determination on national aircraft.
In order to exert efficiently the independence and credibility required as an investigation organization, the Aviation Safety Council has actively promoted the establishment of one independent organization that executes the occurrence investigation duties independently. After years of efforts with the support from the Executive Yuan and the Legislative Yuan, and in cooperation in government’s reorganization plan, the ‘Organization Act of Aviation Safety Council’ finally went through the third reading at the Legislative Yuan on Oct 28th, 2011. It was later promulgated by Presidential Decree No. 10000252521 on November 14th, 2011 that ‘Aviation Safety Council’ would become officially an independent organization, in effective on May 20th, 2012.
Furthermore ‘Regulations for Departmental Affairs of the Aviation Safety Council’ and the ‘Personnel Establishment Table of the Aviation Safety Council’ were approved by the Executive Yuan on February 21st, 2012, promulgated on March 15th. There are to be implemented on May 20th, 2012.
