What is a PAS?

A PAS (Publicly Available Specification) is a fast-track standardization document – the result of an expert consulting service from BSI. It defines good practice for a product, service or process. It’s a powerful way to establish the integrity of an innovation or approach.

Why create a PAS?

  • Raise your profile: You’ll have your logo next to BSI’s on the front cover of this professional document.
  • Benchmark quality and influence the marketplace: A PAS can improve the quality of a whole industry, encouraging mutual support and collaboration, whilst influencing the marketplace.
  • Create solutions: A PAS can accelerate innovation or create an industry solution by bringing a steering group of experts together, whilst sharing knowledge and expertise to drive industry growth.
  • Show leadership: A PAS marks you out as a leader in the area that needs standardization in order to build consensus and improve quality.
