Standards

The annual Passenger Services Conference Resolutions Manual contains all the Resolutions and Recommended Practices (RP) that IATA publishes for baggage handling, processes and baggage prorates.

Resolutions are mandatory practices for IATA Member Airlines, while RPs are created as a form of best practice, and can be implemented at the discretion of the airlines. Their common purpose is to steer the industry and establish standard rules for the functioning of IATA mechanisms, while promoting the collaboration between the airlines in enriching the airline industry.
