BSI sets the standard for CAV test safety

4 March 2020

BSI has released a new specification setting out minimum requirements for managing safety during development testing and when trialling automated vehicles both on and off public roads.

The organsisation produced the specification PAS 1881 Assuring Safety of Automated Vehicle Trials and Testing in its role as the UK’s National Standards Body.

It is the first fast-tracked standardisation document, known as a Publicly Available Specification (PAS), to be published as part of BSI’s two-year connected and autonomous vehicles (CAV) Standards Programme.
