Data, Analytics & Insights

Accident data is collected specifically for anonymous trending, benchmarking and root cause analysis.

To protect the anonymity of participating companies while collecting accident data, the Tanker Accident Database operates over a dual-system framework.

The two independent systems, run over standalone networks, allow the data entered by a participating company to be stripped of identifiable attributes and act as anonymous data for trending and best-practice analysis.

Data Collection

In the Data Collection area, vessel owners and technical managers will enter, refine and complete root cause analysis of accident details before submitting an anonymous copy of the record to the Analysis area.


The Analysis area will process the anonymous global accident data. Over time, analytics and insights into trends will be identified, highlighting any correlation that exists between vessel characteristics, accident types and root causes.
