The National Transportation Safety Board seeks to ensure that all types

of transportation in the United States are conducted safely. The Board investigates accidents, conducts studies, and makes recommendations to Government agencies, the transportation industry, and others on safety measures and practices.

The National Transportation Safety Board
was established in 1967 and made
totally independent on April 1, 1975, by
the Independent Safety Board Act of
1974 (49 U.S.C. app. 1901).

The Safety Board consists of five
members appointed by the President
with the advice and consent of the
Senate for 5-year terms. The President
designates two of these members as
Chairman and Vice Chairman of the
Board for 2-year terms. The designation
of the Chairman is made with the advice
and consent of the Senate.

Accident Investigation The Board is
responsible for investigating, determining
probable cause, making safety
recommendations, and reporting the
facts and circumstances of:

-U.S. civil aviation and certain public-use aircraft accidents;

-railroad accidents in which there is a fatality or substantial property damage, or that involve a passenger train;

--pipeline accidents in which there is a fatality, substantial property damage, or significant injury to the environment;

-highway accidents, including railroad grade-crossing accidents, that the Board selects in cooperation with the States;

-major marine casualties, and marine accidents involving a public vessel and a nonpublic vessel, in accordance with regulations prescribed jointly by the Board and the U.S. Coast Guard; and

-other transportation accidents that are catastrophic, involve problems of a recurring character, or otherwise should be investigated in the judgment of the Board. Safety Problem Identification In addition, the Board makes recommendations on matters pertaining to transportation safety and is a catalyst for transportation accident prevention by conducting safety studies and special investigations, assessing techniques of accident investigation and publishing recommended procedures for these investigations, establishing regulatory requirements for reporting accidents, evaluating the transportation safety consciousness and efficacy of other Government agencies in the prevention of accidents, evaluating the adequacy of safeguards and procedures concerning the transportation of hazardous materials and the performance of other Government agencies charged with ensuring the safe transportation of such materials, and reporting annually to the Congress on its activities. Certificate, Civil Penalty, or License Appeal The Board also reviews on
