Accident & Incident Investigation
Accidents & incidents are investigated by professional surveyors, based on the IMO Code for Marine Casualties and Incidents.
MAC investigation reports are then followed up by investigations and hearings of the Curaçao Committee of Investigations. This Committee is appointed by the Minister of Traffic, Transportation and Urban Planning for a period of 4 years. The Committee’s investigations are published and filed for policy purposes. For large maritime accidents & disasters, Curaçao can rely on the assistance of the Dutch Safety Council.
