Access SMS Standards
SM-001, published on September 17, 2018, is available at the AIA website.
The Aerospace Industries Association participated with 4 other aviation organizations to develop SM-001, Implementing a Safety Management System (SMS) for Design, Manufacturing and Maintenance Providers. SM-001 will enable the global aviation industry to implement SMS consistent with the International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) Annex 19 “Safety Management” standards and recommended practices.
AIA worked with The AeroSpace and Defense Association of Europe (ASD), Aerospace Industries Association of Brazil (AIAB), the Aerospace Industries Association of Canada (AIAC) and the General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) to create the standard, and each organization makes it available on their websites. SMS is a decision-making system based on proactively identifying, assessing and controlling hazards and safety risks before they result in accidents and incidents, and analyzing performance data for continuous improvement. The associations that developed the standard have established a steering committee to oversee and support the standard, including working with the broader stakeholder community to ensure that future revisions are effective.
