Basic Aviation Risk Standard
Many resource sector companies rely on chartered aircraft operators for a number of support activities including, most importantly, the movement of company personnel. The aircraft supporting these activities range from small single-engine helicopters to transport category jet aircraft, utilized in a variety of challenging environments.
The BAR Standard was developed from an industry-identified need to establish a common safety audit standard that could be applied to on-shore resource sector aviation support activities. It provides contracting companies with the level of safety assurance required by their respective organizations.
The Standard was developed from a risk-based model framed against the actual threats posed to aviation operations. It directly links these to associated controls and recovery and mitigation measures, as opposed to the out dated prescriptive format previously used within the industry.
The Standard provides a consistent audit model that allows member resource companies to share in the audits of operators all of whom have been subject to a consistent standard of audit.
**The International Council of Mining and Metals (ICMM) released this statement in support of the BAR Standard.**
