Global Safety Information Center (GSIC)
With the decrease in the num¬ber of accidents, techniques to improve aviation safety have moved beyond the analyses of isolated accidents to data-driven analyses of trends and the interaction between the links in the air transport chain.
The approach is supported by the Global Safety Information Center (GSIC). The GSIC is a collection of safety information from across seven different safety databases. These databases include the IATA accident database, the Safety Trend Evaluation Analysis and Data Exchange System (STEADES) reports, IOSA and ISAGO audit findings, the FDX, the Ground Damage Database (GDDB), and a new cabin safety operational report database.
More than 470 organizations around the globe submit safety data to the GSIC. Over 90% of IATA member carriers are participating.
The structure of the GSIC will help to build an all-encompassing Global Aviation Data Management (GADM) platform. The GADM will integrate data from multiple sources and areas of aircraft operation into the most comprehensive aircraft operational database available.
Airline members interested in joining the GSIC, please register now. Once your request for access is approved, you will be able to access the GSIC portal.

Access to multiple sources of industry data
The IATA Safety Report contains critical information on aviation industry accidents, causes and prevention strategies. It is the collaborative effort of industry partners from airlines, manufacturers and international organizations.
Flight Data Exchange (FDX)
FDX is an aggregated de-identified database of FDA/FOQA type events. It will allow flight operations and safety departments to proactively identify safety hazards.
The STEADES database of de-identified airline incident report is the world's largest, offering a secure environment for airlines to pool safety information for global benchmarking and analysis needs.
IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA)
The IOSA program is an internationally recognized and accepted evaluation system designed to assess the operational management and control systems of an airline. IOSA's quality audit principles are designed to conduct audits in a standardized manner.
IATA Safety Audit for Ground Operations (ISAGO)
Within the objective of improving safety and reduce ground damage ISAGO brings together airlines, ground services providers, cargo handlers and other industry stakeholders. Using internationally recognized audits standards, ISAGO also aims to improve efficiency by reducing the number of redundant audits.
Ground Damage Database (GDDB)
The Ground Damage Database is designed to facilitate data-driven decisions to measurably reduce aircraft ground damage.
GSIC Cabin Safety enhances safety for IATA member airlines, by providing them access to in-depth reports and recommendations derived from this information.
