Montreal Geneva Introduction The IRM contains the abbreviations and terms used in iata 's Audit documentation. Terms that do not have a unique meaning in iata Audit Programs , or are defined in most dictionaries, are not included in this Glossary. Likewise, commonly used operational terms that would generally be understood by most airline industry personnel are not defined.
3 Where two or more terms have the same meaning, the definition shown is for the preferred term. In preparing the document, every effort was made to achieve consistency with definitions of terms used in various industry documents. However, inconsistencies will continue to exist in some of these documents, and users should understand that, where such inconsistencies are noted, common sense will prevail in providing an interpretation. Applicability and Purpose The purpose of the IRM is to provide common definitions of terms, as well as the meaning of definitions and acronyms, contained in or associated with: Standards in the IOSA Program Manual (IPM);. Standards in the ISAGO Program Manual (GOPM);. Standards in the ISSA Program Manual (ISPM);. Standards and Recommended Practices in the IOSA Standards Manual (ISM);.
