In order to ensure access of media representatives to public interest information, the Civil Aviation Safety Investigation and Analysis Authority (SIAA) grants on request, without discrimination, permanent or temporary accreditation of journalists and other representatives of mass-media. The accredited persons shall have priority access to our information and events.

Permanent accreditation

Permanent accreditation is valid until the end of the ongoing year, and journalists with permanent accreditation are informed by e-mail on the activities of SIAA and they have access to public actions organized at the headquarters of SIAA from 40 Bucharest-Ploiești Road, District 1, Postal code 013695, Bucharest, Romania.

To obtain a permanent accreditation at SIAA, the journalists must fill and submit an application for accreditation, of which model can be downloaded here (estimated average time for filling the form: 5 minutes).

The accreditation application shall be accompanied for compliance, by the following documents:

  • passport-size pfoto;
  • copy of press card;
  • copy of identity card.

The documents mentioned above can be sent electronically by e-mail, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or submitted to the Secretariat of SIAA – 40 Bucharest-Ploiești Road, District 1, Postal code 013695, Bucharest, Romania.

Permanent accreditations are issued as follows:

  • for central newspapers: 3 editors and 2 photojournalists;
  • for local newspapers: 1 editor and 1 photojournalist;
  • for radio and television: 3 editors and 8 operators and technicians;
  • for press agencies: 3 editors and 3 photojournalists.

Permanent accreditation is granted in 2 (two) working days from registering the accreditation application and it is valid until the end of the ongoing year, requiring an annual renewal.

After obtaining the accreditation, by coming to the headquarters of SIAA, the mass-media representatives will get the accreditation badges, after showing a valid identity card or a press card. The accreditation badges are not transferable.

Temporary accreditation

The temporary accreditation is valid for one day and it allows access of journalists to public actions organized at the headquarters of SIAA from 40 Bucharest-Ploiești Road, District 1, Postal code 013695, Bucharest, Romania.

Temporary accreditation may be obtained each time, based on an accreditation application of the editorial staff, signed by the chief editor, for the person/persons requiring the accreditation. A model of accreditation application can be downloaded here (estimated average time for filling the form: 5 minutes).

The accreditation application shall be accompanied for compliance, by the following documents:

  • passport-size pfoto;
  • copy of press card;
  • copy of identity card.

The documents mentioned above can be sent electronically by e-mail, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or submitted to the Secretariat of SIAA – 40 Bucharest-Ploiești Road, District 1, Postal code 013695, Bucharest, Romania.

Temporary accreditation is granted in 2 (two) working days from registering the accreditation application and it is valid for only one day, only for the action/actions it was issued for.

After obtaining the accreditation, by coming to the headquarters of SIAA, the mass-media representatives will get the accreditation badges, after showing a valid identity card or a press card. The accreditation badges are not transferable.

Refusal, withdrawal or expiration of accreditation

The withdrawal or refusal for the accreditation of a media representative should be substantiated by facts that hinder the performance in normal conditions of SIAA activities and do not refer to the opinions expressed in media by the respective journalist. In case of withdrawal of a journalist accreditation, the press institution (editorial office on whose behalf she/he obtained the accreditation) shall be informed, in order to ensure the accreditation of another journalist.

If the accredited journalist ended the labor contract with the editorial office on behalf of which she/he has obtained accreditation at the Civil Aviation Safety Investigation and Analysis Authority, her/his accreditation loses its validity.

Thus, the media institutions must notify SIAA in writing if they want the withdrawal of a journalist accreditation or if there are cases where duties end between the editorial office and the accredited journalist on behalf of which she/he has obtained accreditation to SIAA.

Also, journalists with permanent accreditation are required to apply for renewal of accreditation at the beginning of each calendar year.
