Publicly Available Specification
PAS stands for Publicly Available Specification and 43 is simply the sequential number in the range of these standards. It is known as a sector scheme and the way sector schemes differ from ISO standards is that they are designed for a particular area of business. PAS 43 is designed for the vehicle recovery industry with the aim of improving health and safety and promoting best practice. It sets out the standards for vehicle recovery operators and one of the main areas of focus is the safety of road recovery operator technicians and road users. It is intended to promote best practice for operators attending the recovery, repair and removal of vehicles from the roadside. It sets out the technical requirements for establishing competence for operators and technicians, the equipment and maintenance requirements for vehicles and premises and the implementation of the required operational procedures.
PAS 43 is usually implemented alongside ISO 9001 which is used as an operating system upon which sector schemes can be attached.
