The International Standard for Business Aircraft Handlers (IS-BAH), developed by the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) and the National Air Transportation Association (NATA), is a set of global industry best practices for business aviation ground handlers that features at its core a safety management system (SMS).

IS-BAH follows the long-established format and structure of the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO) program and incorporates many of the guidelines from NATA’s popular Ground Audit Standard as well as elements of that association’s Safety 1st training program. As a global industry code of best practices, IS-BAH will provide standardization to handlers and operators around the world, helping them meet the coming SMS requirements from the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).
