The Quality and Safety Management systems have vital importance in providing assurance across the industry. Through systemic and rigorous approaches, IATA maintains and promotes to achieve uncompromised levels of safety and quality through its Safety Audit Programs. By implementing an extensive range of oversight and monitoring activities, IATA ensures a continuous evolution of its safety programs.

IMX (Integrated Management Solutions) is an electronic platform that provides an efficient and cost-effective solution for Quality and Safety Management, supporting audit activities, hazard identification, risk assessment and control. 

IATA does not consider airline safety ratings or rankings to be a valid measure of an individual organization’s safety performance. Find out more about IATA's position on Airline Safety Rankings (pdf).
