Achieving IS-BAH for your organization is not as complicated as some may think.  There are only six-steps to registration.  Let’s get started!



2024 bah six steps

  1. Purchase an IS-BAH™ subscription, which includes the standards (15 Chapters) and Implementation Guide by completing the purchase FORM.
  2. Send a representative from your organization to an IBAC approved “Fundamentals of IS-BAH™” workshop.
  3. Conduct a gap analysis between your organization’s standards and procedures and those of the IS-BAH Programme.
  4. Develop procedures to identify hazards and eliminate or reduce the quantified risk to acceptable levels using a broad range of guidance material provided with the standard.
  5. Integrate procedures into department systems, programmes, operating procedures, and manuals, using materials provided.
  6. Complete an external IS-BAH audit by selecting an accredited IS-BAH auditor from the IBAC website.

Once a ground handling organization reaches this IS-BAH achievement, they can proudly display the certificate in their facility and also have access to the official IS-BAH seal/logo (Stage 2 and Stage 3 specific seals also available) to use in various communications that will clearly identify this globally recognized accomplishment.

IBAC is a non-profit Council of business aviation associations. The IS-BAH was developed by IBAC, its Member Associations and the National Air Transport Association (NATA) for the benefit of business aviation worldwide. The price of the document has been set to recover the cost of development and the ongoing maintenance cost of a dynamic standard that will be continuously updated to reflect current procedures, equipment and regulations. The IBAC policy is to sell the standards on a non-profit basis.
