When to file a T-SAP report



An eligible Technical Operations Services employee may file a T-SAP report for any potential safety risk to the National Airspace System (NAS) involving operations, equipment, or personnel. It is imperative that employees identify all potential safety hazards within the NAS in order to maintain the integrity of the system and to take appropriate corrective actions as necessary. Reporting safety hazards (either systemic or individual) enhances system integrity and ensures the necessary protections for personnel, equipment and operations.
What should I report?
1. Non-compliance reports. Non-compliance reports identify specific instances of a failure to follow FAA directives.
2. Aviation safety concern reports. - Aviation safety concerns that do not involve specific non-compliance with FAA directives are reportable via T-SAP. These may include, but are not limited to, potential safety events or perceived problems with policies, procedures, equipment, automation, and publications used to provide air traffic services.
When should I report it?
When an employee observes a safety problem or experiences a safety-related event, he or she should note the problem or event and describe it in enough detail so that it can be evaluated by a third party. At an appropriate time during the workday, the employee should electronically submit a T-SAP report for each safety problem or event at www.t-sap.org.
What are the benefits of reporting to T-SAP?
This program fosters a voluntary, cooperative, and non-punitive environment for the open reporting of safety concerns. This information will be analyzed in order to develop corrective actions to help solve safety issues that previously may not have been discovered, thereby reducing the likelihood of errors, incidents or other safety related events. For a report accepted under T-SAP, the FAA will not take punitive or credentialing action against the submitter with respect to the reported event.
