||The objective of this article is to highlight evidence of serious under-reporting of maritime accidents in accident databases, which can be considered as the main contributor to questioning the direct and uncritical use of historical data. By analysing the 10-year tanker accident data from the Lloyd's Register (LRFP) and the Norwegian Maritime Directorate (NMD) for vessels registered in Norway, it was found that the reporting performance has an upper bound of 41% for NMD and 30% for LRFP. Furthermore, based on comparison between LRFP data and self-assessment by Flag States, it is concluded that accidents reported by the Flag States are also incomplete.
