In Bermuda, the Governor has made Civil Aviation (Investigation of Air Accidents and Incidents) Regulations under Section 75 to the Civil Aviation Act 1982, as extended to the Overseas Territories by an Order in Council. These Regulations are applied in Bermuda in order to implement and give effect to the Standards and Recommended Practices contained in Annex 13 to the Convention on International Civil Aviation 1944 (the Chicago Convention). The Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) is the accident investigation authority for Bermuda for the purpose of carrying out investigations into accidents and serious incidents to which these Regulations apply.
