Air Carriers helped develop the first commercial iteration of WBAT in 2004. Now, the FAA is requiring all Part 121 air carriers to develop and implement a Safety Management System (SMS) by the first quarter of 2018. In response, WBAT maintains its long-standing relationship with the FAA to ensure our SMS modules are fully compliant with 14 CFR part 5 language.
In February 2017, the WBAT team met with AFS-900 personnel to review and accept the recent changes made to the Safety Risk Management (SRM) module within the platform.
The WBAT platform offers a robust SMS Implementation Manager (SMS IM). This allows your organization to perform a preliminary or detailed gap analysis across operational departments. The SMS IM module is tailored with specific 14 CFR part 5 references and FAA levels of compliance. Determine your organization’s level of compliance and document it all on the WBAT platform, with no need for additional programs.
After documenting your part 5 levels of compliance, schedule a meeting using the WBAT platform and add the requirements you wish to discuss with the FAA. Using the WBAT meeting feature minimizes in-person documentation review. Send your FAA inspector web-based packages documented in WBAT and allow them to view it before in-person validation.
