||This study examines the international efforts undertaken to investigate maritime accidents. It focuses on the approaches used to obtain structured accident data in order to form a solid statistical basis for the assessment of existing maritime safety standards and the development of new standards. A casualty investigation follow-up method was developed, based on a process model of the maritime casualty (SEMOMAP) and data scheme. It was used to obtain data on accident processes and their underlying factors. Although the number of maritime accidents was not sufficient to enable general conclusions regarding causes, it was clear that there were gaps in the reports concerning the influencing factors of crew performance. Consequently, the accident process often cannot be modelled for safety scientific purposes on the basis of casualty reports. This underlines the need for a more structured approach in future.
