UIC Safety Database

UIC records descriptions of significant railway accidents in its Safety Database. All UIC members are invited to participate on a voluntary basis.
The Safety Database contains information on more than 30,000 accidents in 30 countries.

For further information, please visit the dedicated website: https://safetydb.uic.org

UIC Safety Reports

On the basis of the information contained in the Safety Database, UIC issues two statistical reports on accidents each year.

The first report contains individual data, and access is limited to participating members.

The second report contains aggregated data and is publicly available. All public reports issued since 2007 can be consulted at https://safetydb.uic.org/spip.php?article2
