Aircraft and Railway Accidents Investigation Commission

Aircraft and Railway Accidents Investigation Commission

The Nihongo|Aircraft and Railway Accidents Investigation Commission (ARAIC)|航空・鉄道事故調査委員会|Koku-tetsudōjiko chōsa iinkai is a commission belonging to the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport. Commission members are appointed by the transport minister to research causes of aircraft and railway accidents and to suggest improvements to prevent similar accidents in future.

It was founded in 1974 as Aircraft Accidents Investigation Commission, following the All Nippon Airways Flight 58 Shizukuishi aircraft accident on July 30, 1971 and the Toa Domestic Airlines Flight 64 accident. [Yasuo Sato [http://www.jrtr.net/jrtr33/pdf/f20_sat.pdf "Activities of Japan's Aircraft and Railway Accidents Investigation Commission"] "Japan Railway & Transport Review" No. 33]

After a train accident occurred on the Tokyo Metro Hibiya Line on March 8, 2000 the former AAIC was restructured to ARAIC to also deal with railway accidents.
