In 2010, the European Commission conducted a comprehensive review of EU legislation on civil aviation accident and incident investigations. This review resulted in the adoption of Regulation (EU) No 996/2010 , which currently provides the legal framework for the conduct of civil aviation accident and incident investigations in the EU.
Following the entry into force of Regulation (EU) No 996/2010, civil aviation safety investigation authorities of EU Member States gathered on 19 January 2011 in Brussels to establish the "European Network of Civil Aviation Safety Investigation Authorities" (ENCASIA) .
Additionally, a European Central Repository of Safety Recommendations and their responses has been created, access to which is regulated by Commission Decision 2012/780/EU .
