NTSB’s 2021 – 2022 Most Wanted List Board Meeting Postponed

A New Board Meeting Date Is Yet To Be Announced

The National Transportation Safety Board has announced its decision to postpone the planned March 9, 2021, board meeting for the 2021 – 2022 Most Wanted List of Transportation Safety Improvements.

The agency postponed the meeting to further refine the proposed list of safety items. The NTSB will announce the new board meeting date when it is added to the board calendar.

The NTSB’s Most Wanted List of Transportation Safety Improvements is a communication strategy through which the agency identifies its top safety improvements that when made will prevent accidents, reduce the number and severity of injuries, and save lives.

The NTSB previously held media briefings to roll out its Most Wanted List, however, in response to a GAO report calling for more transparency in the development of the list, the NTSB opted to return to the board meeting as one way to help stakeholders, advocacy partners, recommendation recipients and the traveling public understand how and why the 2021 – 2022 list was created.

“From 1990 through 2010 the Most Wanted List was finalized during board meetings,” said Nicholas Worrell, Chief of the NTSB’s Advocacy Division.

“In 2011 we reimagined the Most Wanted List and in 2012 we adopted an electronic voting process for the board, which reduced the amount of time and resources necessary to develop the list. In 2018 the GAO audited the NTSB’s process for determining the Most Wanted List and recommended we better document and communicate our decisions about the list. The return to holding a board meeting to finalize the list reflects our commitment to those recommendations,” said Worrell.

In keeping with established federal and local social distancing guidelines to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, while also ensuring the NTSB’s compliance with the Government in the Sunshine Act, the board meeting for the Most Wanted List will be webcast to the public, with the board members and NTSB staff meeting virtually. There will be no physical gathering to facilitate the board meeting.
