PAS 402:2013

Waste resource management. Specification for performance reporting

Status : Current   Published : May 2013



What is this PAS about?

It provides waste management organizations with a specification for performance reporting. This should increase reuse and recycling of waste because it provides a way for government and local authorities to specify best practice, and for waste resource management organizations to demonstrate it. 

Who is this PAS for?

  • Waste management organizations
  • Government and local authorities

Why should you use this PAS? 

It provides a framework for demonstrating performance against key areas of delivery, including how specific waste resource management activities are conducted, and landfill diversion and materials recovery, thus assuring potential and existing customers of the service they are procuring. 

It also provides clients such as government and local authorities with a framework for good practice which they can specify.

What’s changed since the last update?
