Board Minutes

The IS-BAH™ Standards Board is the decision-making body for all changes to the standards contained in the IS-BAH™.
These Terms of Reference provide for the establishment and ongoing management of the IS-BAH™ Standards Board.

The IBAC Governing Board authorizes establishment of the IS-BAH™ Standards Board. The Standards Board is delegated responsibility by the IBAC Governing Board for the content of the standards. The IBAC Governing Board retains authority for broad policy for the IS-BAH™, including setting the price for the sale of the documents.

IS-BAH Standards Board Members
The IS-BAH™ Standards Board consists of the IBAC Director General, a representative from the National Air Transportation Association (NATA) and not less than six (6) nor more than sixteen (16) Members nominated by the member associations and approved by the Standards Board.
The Board shall be comprised of at least three Members currently serving in ground handling operations, two Members in flight operations, and at least one Member currently involved in airport operations. One Member will be nominated from the helicopter industry associations. One Member is to be nominated by NATA. One Member is to be nominated from the training organizations.
All members will be appointed for a three-year term ending May 31; however, the membership terms of the appointed Members shall be arranged so that the term of at least two Members expires each year.
Members may be re-appointed at the end of their term. Should new members fail to be appointed, the Board may extend the terms of serving Members.
Members may be removed for insufficient participation. Such termination requires a two-thirds (2/3) vote of the attending Standards Board members.
Other individuals with subject matter expertise may be invited to attend all or part of any meeting as and when appropriate.
The IS-BAH™ Standards Board will elect a Chairperson and a Vice-Chairperson from among its Members, each to serve for a two-year term of office.


Meetings will be held at a minimum of once per year and will normally be of one-day duration. Meeting dates will be established approximately one year in advance of the meetings. On occasion, extraordinary meetings may be required to consider unforeseen issues.

The IS-BAH™ Programme Director and IBAC administrative staff will provide secretariat services for the IS-BAH™ Standards Board. Board Members will be provided with the Agenda and material for the meeting approximately one week in advance of the meetings.
The IS-BAH™ Programme Director is responsible for assessing all proposals for change to the standards and collating the assessments for consideration by the Board at its annual meeting.

Throughout their term, IS-BAH™ Standards Board members are expected to keep information discussed during the meetings confidential and to abide by the following provisions:

1. Not to disclose information discussed to a third party without IBAC’s express consent to release such information;
2. Understand that any failure to abide by these provisions may result in the termination of the position on this and other IBAC Standards Boards.

The IS-BAH™ Standards Board will issue an Annual Report to the IBAC Governing Board. The Standards Board will also report all changes to the IS-BAH™ standards on the IBAC Website dedicated to the IS-BAH™.

All administrative costs associated with the IS-BAH™ Standards Board will be the responsibility of the IS-BAH™ Dedicated Account.
Members are expected to pay their travel expenses.
