Accident Insurance Association

The Association d’Assurance Accident (AAA – Accident Insurance Association) is a public institution responsible for the prevention and compensation of accidents at work and occupational diseases. Created by the legislator in 1901 and reformed by the law of May 12th, 2010, it is placed under the tutelage of the minister of the social security and is managed by a steering committee composed as follows:

1 president: government appointed official
8 employers’ delegates: 7 delegates appointed by the Chamber of Commerce and the Chamber of Trades
1 delegate appointed by the Chamber of Agriculture
8 employee delegates: 7 delegates of private sector employees appointed by the Chamber of Employees
1 delegate of  employees of the public sector appointed by the Chamber of Public Servants and Public Employees

The most important AAA administrative services, ensuring relations with employers and policyholders, are:

Accident insurance contribution

Expenses for compulsory insurance are financed by contributions from employers or non-salaried insured persons. While until 2010, contributors were divided into 21 classes depending on the nature of the activity insured, from 2011, the general scheme is financed jointly by contributors whatever the risk of accident inherent in the activity they perform. Following this reform, the AAA steering committee sets each year a single contribution rate for the coming year.
