Audit Review Meeting (ARM)

Communication with our stakeholders is key and every six months, the participating Audit Companies are invited to attend the Audit review Meeting to discuss the operational aspects of the Audit element of the BARS program. The auditors and Audit Companies are the eyes and ears of the Program with their interaction with the Aircraft Operators. The ARM is also the opportunity for the BARS Program Office to provide feedback on new Program initiatives and developments directly to the Audit Companies. The ARM is held twice a year, once in Australia and once in an international location- co-located with the TAC Meeting.
