The Japan Transport Safety Board (運輸安全委員会, Un'yu Anzen Iinkai, JTSB) is Japan's authority for establishing transportation safety. It is a division of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT). It is housed in the 2nd Building of the Central Common Government Office (中央合同庁舎第2号館) in Kasumigaseki, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, Japan.[1][2]

The agency formed on October 1, 2008 as a merger between the Japan Marine Accident Inquiry Agency (JMAIA) and the Aircraft and Railway Accidents Investigation Commission (ARAIC).[3]

[edit]

In March 2012, the JTSB adopted a logo. The sphere represents the desire to carry out investigations of accidents and to maintain independence and fairness. The lines around the sphere represent the air, land, and sea. The blue-green color of the sphere represents safety.[4]
