‘2017 AsiaSASI EXCO Meeting and Investigation Practice Technical Meeting’
The Aviation Safety Council (ASC) held the '2017 AsiaSASI EXCO Meeting and Investigation Practice Technical Meeting ' on June 20 and 21, 2017.
The ASC joined the International Society of Air Safety Investigators (ISASI) as a member in 1998. With a view to promoting experiences-sharing, information-exchange and establishing resources-interchange among air safety investigators and air safety investigating bodies within Asian region, eighteen Corporate Members and four Individual Members of ISASI in Asia co-initiated the formation of an Asian Regional Chapter of the ISASI, so the Asian Society of Air Safety Investigators (AsiaSASI) was formed in 2009. The ASC was invited to become a founding member of the AsiaSASI and joined the Executive Committee (EXCO) to be a co-opted Member on April, 2015. Currently members of EXCO are: Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, Macau and Indonesia. The AsiaSASI EXCO meeting is hosted by Member State annually on a rotational basis.

Participants include Japan Transport Safety Board (JTSB), Indonesian National Transportation Safety Committee (NTSC), and Transport Safety Investigation Bureau (TSIB) of Singapore.
