IBAC has redesigned this affiliate programme to recognize exceptional businesses that actively assist organizations with improved and more effective safety standards in the context of an IBAC International Standards programmes.

The goal of the PSA programme is for IBAC to provide a validated list of third-party vendors that will support organizations seeking to implement the IBAC Standards Programmes through to registration.

They need assistance from other professionals that understand what it takes to be IS-BAO and have a passion for helping others develop their safety culture.

There are two PSA categories, Subject Matter Experts and IS-BA Audit and Registration Support that have different training requirements and privileges for each group. To learn more, download the PSA table of descriptions.
