PAS 402:2013

Waste resource management. Specification for performance reporting

Status : Current   Published : May 2013



Sponsored by Constructing Excellence in Wales (CEW), funded by the Welsh Government, PAS 402:2013 supersedes PAS 402:2009.

The aim of PAS 402 is to provide waste management organizations with a specification for performance reporting. The specification provides the framework for the demonstration of performance against key areas of delivery, including landfill diversion and materials recovery, assuring potential and existing customers of the service they are procuring. It can provide clients such as government and local authorities with a framework for good practice which they can specify.

It requires a waste resource management organization to report:
a) how it conducts specific waste resource management activities; and
b) the landfill diversion and material recovery rates it achieves.

Developed in consultation with a wide range of stakeholders, PAS 402’s purpose is  to increase reuse and recycling of waste by providing a framework within which good practice in waste management can be demonstrated by waste management organizations and specified by clients (e.g. government and local authorities).

What is a PAS?

A PAS provides a sponsored, fast-track route to standardization driven by the needs of the client organizations and developed according to guidelines set out in PAS 0. Key stakeholders are brought together to collaboratively produce a BSI PAS that has all the functionality of a British Standard for the purposes of supporting certification, sharing good practice or supporting innovation.

Within two years of the publication date a PAS is reviewed to determine whether amendment or revision is required or whether it should be considered for conversion to a formal British Standard.

A wide range of PAS documents are available to buy here in the BSI Shop, with many available as instant downloads. Some are also available free of charge. For more information about fast-track standards, how PASs are commissioned, and how they could help your organization, please visit our PAS webpage.
