At the international level, according to the Law 27,514, the Transportation Safety Board (JST) is in charge of:
- Conducting investigations with national or international teams and experts, when the complexity or particular characteristics of the investigation of an accident or incident so require
- Representing the Argentine Republic in negotiations with international organizations with competence in the matter.
Likewise, the JST develops its investigations in accordance with international standards and methods, such as those recommended by the International Civil Aviation Organization in aeronautical matters, and by the International Maritime Organization in maritime matters.
For this reason, the JST maintains links and direct contact with the heads of state accident investigation agencies and operational safety organizations in the world, as well as with international companies working in the area of transportation and safety.
Agreements and international links are of vital importance for the exchange of best practices, promote inter-agency cooperation, train personnel to the highest standards, improve technology in investigations and, above all, coordinate a prompt and effective response in the event of an accident.
