NTSB Revises Public Docket Procedures
The National Transportation Safety Board today announced that it will begin to release all accident investigation public dockets to the NTSB public Web site, www.ntsb.gov
, beginning tomorrow, in accordance with the NTSB Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Improvement Plan.
NTSB said this effort serves to further bring the board into compliance with a number of legislative and executive mandates aimed at improving the government's use of electronic media to foster a more open and transparent government.
"I am proud that the NTSB is taking this enormous step forward by making all accident investigation documents contained in our public dockets available to NTSB Web site visitors," said Acting Chairman Mark V. Rosenker. "The safety board's reputation for comprehensive and thorough investigations can only be further enhanced by providing such easy access to the materials related to the accidents we investigate."
