Project Description


30W can provide a detailed Gap Analysis or perform your Audit. We have conducted audits worldwide. Our knowledge and experience make your audit more useful and adds value to your organization.

We provide Audit Certification and Audit Preparation/Gap Analysis for IS-BAO, IS-BAH and Audit Preparation/Gap Analysis for IOSA.

We also provide industry best practice audits for all functions of aviation, including airports, security, air traffic, and air navigation.

The IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) program is an internationally recognized and accepted evaluation system designed to assess the operational management and control systems of an airline.

Launched in 2002, the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO™) is designed to promote use of high quality operating practices for international business aircraft operations by:

  • Establishing a framework for effective safety and operational processes
  • Providing tools to perform gap analyses to facilitate the implementation of best practices
  • Delivering a Safety Management System appropriate to your operational profile

IS-BAO™ is based on International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) standards that prepare the operator for both domestic and international operations. It is applicable to both large and small operators.

IS-BAO™ was developed by the business aviation community and is maintained by the community via the IS-BAO™ Standards Board, a group of business aviation subject matter experts nominated by IBAC Member Associations. IS-BAO™ builds on the excellent safety record already established in business aviation.

The program centers on the Safety Management System (SMS) and leads the operator from establishing principles, to achieving an effective SMS, and eventually attaining a risk-averse, generative safety culture. Audits are conducted every two years and ensure conformance with the standards and recommended practices. The audits also provide valuable feedback to the operator. The registration certificate issued upon successful completion of an audit serves as proof of conformance to key ICAO standards.

More than 700 business aviation operators in 35 countries are currently IS-BAO™ registered, and continue to improve their safety risk profile, operating effectiveness and efficiency.

The International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling (IS-BAH) is a set of global industry best practices for business aviation ground handlers, which features at its core a safety management system (SMS). The IS-BAH follows the structure of the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO) Program and incorporates the NATA Safety 1st Ground Audit Program. IS-BAH is the global industry standard for handlers and operators around the world to meet the coming SMS requirements from the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).

IS-BAH™ offers Fixed Based Operators (FBO) and Business Aircraft Handling Agents (BAHA) a scalable, industry-developed code of best practice centered around Safety Management System (SMS) principles adopted by ICAO and other operations-critical industries.

Conforming to these standards and recommended practices is voluntary and may be self-administered. Those FBO/BAHAs seeking independent recognition of conformity to the IS-BAH can do so via a third party auditing process providing an effective way to take your organization beyond compliance and demonstrate to the regulator, your customers and other stakeholders, that your risks are under control.
