This publication represents the last in a series of annual reviews, dating back to 1999-2000.
Over the last ten years, the Bureau has built a reputation as a world class investigative organisation. This has been chronicled through the ten annual reviews which the ATSB has released.
From 1 July 2009, the ATSB has taken on new annual reporting responsibilities which will result in the publication of a very different document. This change is entirely appropriate given the ATSB's status as a newly established statutory agency. However, consistent with our new mandate, I know the Commission will be looking for additional vehicles, similar to the Annual Review, to share the insights our investigations have uncovered and to promote transport safety.
As the ATSB's first Chief Commissioner, I am proud to lead the fine organisation I have inherited from Kym Bills. The successes achieved over the last ten years provide us with a solid foundation on which to achieve the expectations of government. I thank Kym for his dedication, hard work and for his outstanding legacy.
