On 9 July 2009, the Transport Accident Investigation Commission (TAIC) of New Zealand requested assistance from the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) in the transfer of cockpit voice recorder (CVR) and flight data recorder (FDR) magnetic tape recordings onto digital media. The transfer was requested to ensure the archival preservation of information obtained during the TAIC's investigation of various accident and incident events.
To protect the information contained on the recordings against unauthorised disclosure, the ATSB performed the work under the provisions of an investigation initiated under the Australian Transport Safety Investigation Act (2003).
On completion of data transfer, the magnetic tapes were returned to the TAIC, together with the digital copies and a technical report outlining the process undertaken.
Contact details for the TAIC can be found on the web at: www.taic.org.nz
Released in accordance with section 25 of the Transport Safety Investigation Act 2003.
