Environmental Information Request Reference No: 2012080283
Thank you for your request which was received on 15/8/2012 when you asked us for information about:
Referring to the recently circulated (20 July 2012) ONR Technical Advisory Panel Terms of Reference, Aircraft Crash Hazard Assessment (copy attached for your ease of reference) and specifically to the Proposed Technical Areas and Sub Topics of page 2, please identify which of the sub-items 1 a) to k), if any, is to include for and/or consider:
I can confirm that your request is being dealt with under the Environmental Information Regulations 2004 (EIR). However I have established that under EIR we do not hold the information requested, however the answer to your question is the Technical Advisory Panel (TAP) currently being set up as detailed in the Terms of Reference, does not include any of the items listed in points 1 to 5 of your letter. Under Point 6, the TAP is only to consider accidental aircraft impact.
