Aviation Safety Management

A Growing Need for Innovation in Aviation Safety.

Meeting the needs of Air Safety Compliance

Air carriers face numerous compliance challenges around aviation safety management, including complying with regulations and initiatives set forth by the International Air Transport Association (IATA), International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), and government regulators such as the Federal aviation Administration (FAA), Transport Canada, and civil aviation authorities (CAA).

Fostering Compliance for Air Carriers

In addition to demonstrating safety compliance to IATA and regulatory bodies, air carriers must also demonstrate their achievement in aviation safety management system standards to other members of IATA—members continuously audit each other’s operations. The IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) program is designed for the purpose of assessing the operational management and control of systems within the Aviation industry.
