Why was PAS 125 developed for the automotive industry?

BSI worked with specialist research firm Thatcham and other stakeholders, to develop a publication aimed at raising the standards of vehicle body repairs.

Publicly Available Specification (PAS) 125 set down the requirements for vehicle body repair, including measures for the qualification of technicians, repair methods, materials and the machinery/equipment used. Applicable to all categories of repair work undertaken on cars and light commercial vehicles, PAS125 has driven change through the industry and has become the industry standard for vehicle body repair.

The Kitemark® for PAS 125 offers the crash repair industry a benchmark for the efficient, effective and safe repair of vehicles. It represents conformity to the technical requirements of PAS125, demonstrated through assessment of the repair methods, materials, machinery and skills deployed, as well as the business controls applied to ensure continuing conformity to the required standards.

The Kitemark® for PAS 125 also involves ongoing surveillance visits to check that repair activities are up to standard.
