The Bosnia and Herzegovina Directorate of Civil Aviation (BHDCA) has been applying the EMPIC-MED application since 2015 with the aim of improving efficiency in performing medical fitness examination for flight operating personnel, as well as air traffic controllers.

This application is an e-government solution which, via the Internet, connects aero-medical examiners (AMEs) and aero-medical centers (AeMCs) with the competent aviation authority (AMS), in this case with the BHDCA.

The EMPIC application is ISO 9001: 2015 certified, and is also recognized by international aviation organizations and institutions, i.e. ICAO and EASA.
