The ESTONIA Accident 1994

The joint Estonian/Finnish/Swedish Accident Investigation Commission (JAIC) was set up on 29 September 1994. The final report was presented in December 1997.

The Swedish ESTONIA file was transferred from SHK and deposited with the National Archives in 2002. For further information, please contact the National Archives.

The ESTONIA Collection website (Estoniasamlingen) was created in memory of the 852 people who died when ESTONIA sank in the Baltic sea on 28 September 1994. The ESTONIA Collection is managed by the National Archives. The Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency serves as government administration focal point for relatives and survivors.
