Bureau Enquetes-Accidents

Le Bureau Enquetes-Accidents is the former name of the agency of the French government, responsible for investigating aviation accidents and making safety recommendations based on what is learned from those investigations.

Founded in 1962, the BEA conducts its investigations following protocols defined by the ICAO. As of November, 2001, the agency was reformed into the Bureau d'Enquetes et d'Analyses pour la securite de l'aviation civile, which retains the abbreviation BEA.
