Minister, Joseph Kofi Ada said the Bureau would have independence with a clear mandate to investigate air accidents without interference and that a formal bill will be presented to Parliament under a certificate of urgency to fast track its passage.

Ada said the bureau "will function as an autonomous entity with the mandate to investigate aircraft accidents and incidents occurring in and over Ghana as well as the oceanic region within the Accra Flight Information Region."

Meanwhile, deputy Director-General of the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA), Charles Krakue, expressed the need for more collaboration with other stakeholders for safe air space.

"A framework which will allow GCAA and the identified State agencies in attendance here to interact more effectively in the resolution of safety concerns, I am pleased to announce that the SSP will combine prescriptive and performance-based approaches to safety rulemaking, safety policy development and safety oversight in our industry," he said.
