The ATSB is conducting a full investigation into the grounding of the Malaysian flag containership 'Bunga Teratai Satu' on Sudbury Reef in the Great Barrier Reef on 2 November 2000.

In line with the essential function of the ATSB, it is a safety investigation conducted to ascertain all the factors which contributed to the incident.

The Navigation (Marine Casualty) Regulations require that, before the report is released, an 'Interested Party Review' occurs, in which all those whose affairs could be effected by the report are given an opportunity to comment on the draft of the report and to make submissions.

This process takes at least one month from the completion of the investigation and drafting of the report, and consequently the report is not released as a public document for some months after the occurrence. The report will be published on this website as soon as the document is publicly released.
