IORS - Internal Occurrence Reporting System

The Agency adopts and implements this proactive and evidence-based approach with an Internal Occurrence Reporting System (IORS), for the traceability of reported occurrences and of individual follow-up decisions and corrective actions, where applicable. Furthermore, the centralised IORS database serves as one of the sources for various EASA tasks, such as safety analysis and trend monitoring, and enables improved data driven safety related decision making.
