In the framework of the AIG Regional Cooperation Mechanism (ARCM) and as part of the Training Programme for 2016, the First ADREP/ECCAIRS (Accident and Incident Reporting Systems) Workshop was held from 25 to 29 July 2016 at the headquarters of the National Civil Aviation and Aviation Infrastructure Directorate (DINACIA) of the Oriental Republic of Uruguay. The workshop had instructors from the ICAO South American Regional Office and JIAAC Argentina.

The main goal of the workshop is to incorporate the AIG Authority from Uruguay into the ARCM SDCPS (Safety Data Collection and Processing Systems). The SDCPS is an aviation accident and incident regional database of South America.

Other goals are to advise the technology staff to implement a State safety database and train DINACIA officials about the use of the tool.
