ICAO ADREP, IATA & ASIAS Taxonomies Supported in SMS Pro

Aviation SMS Program Taxonomies

Industry accepted taxonomies (classification schemes) are essential to aviation safety programs.

Many valuable classification schemes are being used around the world today. SMS Pro administrators can generate their own classification schema and tailor them to their operations.

aviation SMS software classifications should be configurable, ADREP, STEADS, MEDA
Some classification schemes are too large or unwieldy for specialized operations. Yet EASA and other civil aviation authorities aim to collect accident and incident data from all aviation service providers within their control.

SMS Pro has the ability to map custom classification parameters to "external classification schemes," whether the schema is ADREP, IATA, STEADES, MEDA, HEIDI or ASIAS.

Benefits of Mapping External Aviation SMS Taxonomies?

When your civil aviation authority needs a report using their classification IDs or abbreviations, SMS Pro is prepared to provide exported data in the required formats.

Another benefit is that users can see these classification details in their own language. English, Spanish, French, German and two Chinese dialects can be setup for SMS Pro. If you want your safety program in your language, it takes about two weeks for us to make this happen.

To learn how to map your classification system to ADREP or another taxonomy, contact SMS Pro support staff.
