ABS Jets achieves IS-BAO audit Stage II


ABS Jets has successfully accomplished an IS-BAO audit Stage II after a series of thorough audit report quality checks, performed by several organizations (including the International Business Aviation Council in Montreal), which resulted in no major findings.

ABS Jets achieved its first IS-BAO Stage I registration on August 1, 2013. The Stage II audit is a much deeper and more demanding audit. It is aimed at verifying a strong foundation of a conformance to SMS principles and compliance to international standards. Although these are confirmed by the Stage I audit, Stage II ensures that the company has systems in place that deliver continuously sustainable SMS and standards compliance processes. It also means that safety management activities are being appropriately targeted and safety risks are effectively managed.

To prepare for the IS-BAO Stage II audit the ABS Jets management and support team reviewed the majority of management and operational processes in accordance with IS-BAO standards. They utilized both the IS-BAO audit checklist and ABS Jets internal Safety Performance Assessment and Gap Analysis checklists.

Vladimir Petak, ABS Jets CEO, commented, “This is a great achievement for ABS Jets and further underlines our commitment to the very highest quality and safety standards. I would like to congratulate Martin Orlita, our quality manager, and the team for their excellent work in successfully completing the IS-BAO audit Stage II.”

Martin Orlita, ABS Jets quality and safety manager, added “After two years of preparation I am delighted that ABS Jets has the IS-BAO Stage II audit. We have worked diligently to ensure that ABS Jets meets and exceeds the required standards, it is a great endorsement for everyone at the company.”
