IRATA International’s new Membership Requirements’ will come into effect from 1st July 2021.
This means that, on the 30th June 2021, the use of their ‘Membership Audit Checklist [FM-039ENG]’ will become obsolete for member audit purposes and will be replaced by their ‘Stage 1 Audit Form [FM-333ENG]’. From the 1st July 2021, IRATA Members will be audited against the revised standard - the ‘IRATA Membership Requirements [QP-300ENG]’.
The 26 new standards, many of which are based on existing compliance requirements, were designed to be more user friendly and comprehensible than the existing Membership Audit Checklist [FM-039ENG], and better aligned with established international standards and industry practices.
Freely available supplementary guidance documents are available to support Members and Applicants in understanding the new standards. These can be downloaded in the publications area of the IRATA website, alongside the IRATA Membership Requirements [QP-300ENG]. Further details on all documentation related to the new standard can be found here.
Applicants are advised to read the requirements and guidance documents at their soonest opportunity, regardless of whether their audit is due shortly, or otherwise.
After reviewing the guidance documents, prior to contacting IRATA with any queries, please refer to the FAQ section of the IRATA website, which can be found here.
