Incident Reporting Online Form

Our online reporting system is for all paddling incidents, whether you are a member of British Canoeing or not. Note that you should also report near misses as well as actual incidents.

The information you provide will help us identify paddling issues, and establish an accurate picture of safety and other concerns across the country.

We will use this information to advise members and improve safety for everyone. So, please include incidents such as those with other water users, access issues, pollution/environment, paddling safety etc as well as major incidents or accidents.

A pdf copy of the Incident Report form is attached below the online form. This can be used to record incidents on site where there is no access to the online form.

All information recorded by hand should, subsequently, be transferred and submitted on the online form below.
