The National Team for Transportation Safety and Security was set up a few days after the disappearance of Adam Air Flight 574 on 1 January 2007, by President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, partially as a response to the high number of recent transportational accidents in Indonesia, and also as a direct response to the loss of the aircraft, along with other civil aviation accidents within Indonesia.[1] The team is tasked to evaluate thoroughly the transport safety procedures and review the existing regulations on transportation in Indonesia.[1] It does not, however, investigate accidents; the entity responsible for this is the National Transportation Safety Committee (Indonesian:Komite Nasional Keselamatan Transportasi), which operates under the direct auspicies of the Transportation Ministry.[2]
