The Civil Aviation Agency has regulatory powers related to aviation incidents. The monitoring of aviation safety is an integral part and one of the basic functions of the Agency, and for this purpose a system has been established for reporting events in aviation. The performance of regulatory functions includes: organization of reporting and investigation of incidents in all areas of aviation, oversight of the aviation industry for the established procedures and system for reporting accidents and incidents, analysis, records, reporting of incidents to the international organizations and more.
