NTSB to expand accident report accessibility

Posted on May 28, 2009

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) will begin to release all accident investigation public dockets to the NTSB public Website, www.ntsb.gov/, beginning June 1, 2009, in accordance with the NTSB Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Improvement Plan.

This effort serves to further bring the NTSB into compliance with legislative and executive mandates aimed at improving the U.S. government's use of electronic media to foster a more open and transparent government, according to NTSB.

"I am proud that the NTSB is taking this enormous step forward by making all accident investigation documents contained in our public dockets available to NTSB Website visitors," said Acting Chairman Mark V. Rosenker. "The Safety Board's reputation for comprehensive and thorough investigations can only be further enhanced by providing such easy access to the materials related to the accidents we investigate."

In order to access the NTSB's public dockets, interested parties may visit the FOIA Electronic Reading Room on the NTSB Website and select the list of dockets that are organized by transportation mode. The link to the list of public dockets may be found here.
