Website Policies and Notices


Schedule for Publishing Information and Federal Web Site Inventory Policy

NTSB policy is to publish information as soon as it can be released to the public, so there is no more specific schedule for content release. As new information becomes available that is important to the public, we are committed to putting it on our website in a timely manner.

The National Transportation Safety Board developed this inventory of its public website content as required by Section 207(f)(2) of the E-Government Act of 2002 (enacted as Pub. L. No. 107-347 (2002)).  The purpose of Section 207(f)(2) is to improve the methods by which Government information, including information on the Internet, is organized, preserved, and made accessible to the public.  More information on this requirement can be found on the National Archives and Records Administration Web site.

Section 207(f)(2) of the E-Government Act of 2002 requires each agency to:

The information presented below is intended to be a comprehensive outline of the desires and needs of citizens as a whole and of the agency’s intended audiences.  The NTSB has reviewed frequently requested information or services that would improve business processes and/or customer service to the public in developing this inventory.  Should you wish to provide comments or suggestions on this inventory, please use our online comment form, at http://www.ntsb.gov/pubmail/pubmail.asp, or submit written comments by postal mail to:
