Past Present Future


This publication celebrates the ten-year anniversary of the formation of the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) on 1 July 1999. It is the story of the ATSB, and the earlier organisations that came together to form the ATSB a decade ago.

A proud history

The ATSB was formed on 1 July 1999 from the amalgamation of the Bureau of Air Safety Investigation (BASI), the Marine Incident Investigation Unit (MIIU), and non-regulatory parts of the Federal Office of Road Safety (FORS). In addition, an embryonic Rail Safety investigation capability was established. As this publication shows, each of the bodies that formed the ATSB already had a well-established record for excellence in their respective fields.
