The Confidential Reporting Programme for Aviation and Maritime
The aim of CHIRP is to contribute to the enhancement of aviation safety in the UK and maritime safety worldwide by providing a totally independent confidential (not anonymous) reporting system for all individuals employed in or associated with these industries.
The CHIRP Aviation Programme provides a confidential safety-related reporting function that is available to flight crew; cabin crew; air traffic controllers; licensed engineers and maintenance/engineering personnel; engineers and technical staff involved with design and manufacturing processes; ground-handling & security personnel; and individual aircraft/drone owners/operators. See our Aviation Programmes webpage for further information.
The CHIRP Aviation Programme also provides a facility for confidential
reporting of Bullying, Harassment, Discrimination and Victimisation
(BHDV) where there is an
identifiable safety-related concern. CHIRP has no specific expertise or resources to investigate BHDV reports. CHIRP's role is to aggregate data to build a picture of the prevalence of BHDV in the aviation
sector. See our BHDV page for further information. Initially, BHDV reporting
will be rolled out as a 6-month pilot-programme for Flight Crew and Cabin Crew
only. The remaining sectors of aviation (ATC, Engineering, Ground
Handling etc) will be included once the pilot-programme has been reviewed and
any lessons incorporated (likely to be in April 2022).

CHIRP always protects the identity of our reporters. We are a confidential programme and, as such, we only keep reporters personal details for as long as we need to keep in contact with them.
When a report is closed, all correspondence and contact details are deleted from our system. Paper copies of reports and correspondence are destroyed.
