Prior to Reporting Electronically
REVIEW THE ERS FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ). Browser settings are in the ERS FAQ and are important to the success of your report submission.
NASA has worked to ensure your report is handled securely. Security features include: encryption of your report form during data transmission and storage, and multiple layers of firewalls and security devices. While NASA takes every effort to ensure security, there is potential for vulnerability on the user's end (e.g., spyware, adware, or viruses). For tips on securing your computer prior to report submission please see our Online Security Tips. The NASA ASRS team suggests that you do not save your completed report to a shared (e.g., company) computer.
ASRS cannot accept reports through e-mail due to security issues! If electronic report submission is unavailable and there is a time issue, you may want to download, print and mail the reporting form assuring a timely post mark date.
How to Report Electronically
- Click on the link to the right for the appropriate ASRS form – read the ASRS policy and then click on "Continue to Report." Fill out the form on the computer and click the Submit button at the bottom of the page. If you want to keep a copy of your report for your own records, and you are able to securely print a copy of your report, you must print it BEFORE clicking SUBMIT, and keep the copy in a secure location. For your security, the ERS system will attempt to clear report information from the form after submission.
- After you submit the report, a verification code will appear for your submission. Retain this verification code for future reference. If you do not receive a verification code, refer to the FAQ to ensure proper settings are enabled. If issue cannot be resolved, contact ASRS by using the contact form on the Contact Us page, and select "Electronic Report Submission" as your topic.
- The identification strip at the top of your report will be printed, date stamped and returned to you by U.S. Mail as proof of submission. Forms submitted electronically will be date stamped on the first business day following report transmission. You can expect the return of your identification strip to take a minimum of 14 days after your submission.
