Confidential Reporting

Confidential reporting was developed as ASRS (Aviation Safety Reporting System) by NASA for the Federal Aviation Authority in the USA. This has been operating for over 30 years and as a result of its success, similar schemes have been developed in a number of other countries. In the UK, this is CHIRP (Confidential Reporting Programme for Aviation and Maritime).

CROSS is the first confidential reporting scheme to deal with structures.
