The objective of Safety Research Institute is to build a unique research and knowledge base with a strong research capability in important safety related areas to support regulatory functions of AERB. With this objective, under the initiative of Prof. P. Rama Rao, the then Chairman, AERB, Safety Research Institute was setup at Kalpakkam. The foundation stone for the institute was laid on February 20, 1999 by Dr. R. Chidambaram, the then Chairman, AEC during the IX Five Year Plan period with P.
