What IS-BAH?

Launched in 2014, the International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling (IS-BAH) is designed to enhance the safety and efficiency of business and general aviation Ground Handling Service Providers (GHSP)s on a global level. IS-BAH is based on the implementation of industry best practices blended through a progressive Safety Management System (SMS) appropriate to the scale and nature of GHSPs, including Fixed Based Operations (FBO) and Business Aircraft Handling Agencies (BAHA). As a voluntary programme, IS-BAH is the first industry standard to bring the SMS concept to ground handling and will enable handlers to meet ICAO SMS requirements.
