IOSA XML & IOSA XML X-Ref Module

The IOSA Standards Manual (ISM) contains the IOSA standards, recommended practices (ISARPs), and associated guidance material, which make up the assessment criteria for the IOSA Audit, and that is used by Operators to successfully prepare for an audit.

The ISM is designed to assist operators in creating accuracy and operational efficiencies in preparing and conducting ongoing safe operations, based on the IOSA standard. The ISM is also available in an XML format for ease of integration into operational audit, safety and content management software.

What is the purpose of the IOSA XML and IOSA XML X-REF Module?

Title Summary & purpose
IOSA Standards Manual (XML Format)

As an airline this XML format delivers the ISM in  a complete XML environment through establishing a license agreement with IATA. 
This format is then integrated into audit management, safety management (SMS), and content management software through your third-party software provider.

As a third party software provider establishing a relationship with IATA allows your organization to extend services for greater customer satisfaction and to differentiate your product offering to the marketplace. 

How does the IOSA XML help your operations?

  • Improves efficiencies and accuracy in integration of the IOSA Standards and Recommended Practices (ISARPs) into your operational software
