What is a PAS?
A PAS is a document that standardizes elements of a product, service or process. PASs are usually commissioned by industry leaders – be they individual companies SMEs, trade associations or government departments. Commissioning a PAS puts you in the driving seat for setting the agenda in your sector, helping you work with regulators, set an agreed level of good practice or quality or establish trust in an innovative product or service.
PASs are enormously varied. Recent PASs include detailed specifications for manufacturing in the e-cigarette industry and new guidelines for independent living for those with dementia.
