IOSA / ISSA
The IOSA programme, founded by the IATA, is the gold standard of airline safety compliance. An internationally recognised evaluation system, the IOSA is designed to ensure all airlines can access a standardised process worldwide.
Only a select few IATA accredited auditing organisations worldwide are certified to perform IOSA audits for airlines. Wake QA is currently the only British organisation able to offer this auditing service.
Thanks to its standardised nature, any airline that obtains an IOSA significantly reduces its need to conduct other audits. The IOSA prevents duplicated information and streamlines the safety evaluation process so that airlines only have to perform one audit every two years.
In addition to the IOSA, Wake QA provides ISSA auditing services for smaller airlines that do not qualify for the IOSA. The ISSA is designed to provide the same level of operational efficiency and safety evaluations on a scale more appropriate for smaller aircraft.
The Basic Aviation Risk Standard (BARS) programme founded by the Flight Safety Foundation (FSF), reviews aircraft Operator’s safety in the contracted aviation sector across both fixed and rotary wing aircraft.
Wake QA have been re-accredited as one of only 6 Audit Companies globally to perform BARS audits under the programme, and have a highly experienced team situated around the world – ideally placed to support a wide range of Operators.
