Not being a pilot, learned about the ASRS from this site. Have any aviation safety authorities in other countries attempted to emulate the ASRS and to what degree was it successful? After all it was introduced in 1976, which is quite a while ago.

I'm mostly interested in European airspace, although examples from other countries/regions are welcome.

I don't know much about the ASRS, so but I think this is a similar program... It's obviously not Europe, but Australia has the REPCON scheme for confidentially reporting all sorts of safety matters. The ATSB do a bit of investigating, seeking a response from the airline/whatever organisation is involved, and then publish the responses to a couple in CASA's Flight Safety Australia magazine.
