What is PAS 68?

PAS 68 is a security testing standard.

PAS 68 security products are produced by a wide range of manufacturers. Their products vary from grilles to traffic barriers. A PAS 68 rating is not important for the manufacturer, there are no sales advantages or disadvantages. It’s merely a quality review from a recognised independent body.

It’s the first independent review of a new product or development of an already tested product.

A PAS 68 rating tells you that a product has been through a recognised testing process and has been certified for use as deterrent security product.

The PAS 68 Standard in the UK is applied across all sectors of the built environment. As well as the private sectors; offices, commercial, retail and residential. PAS 68 its also applied to all sectors of the public sector including military, public, transportation, railway, ports, energy, and industrial.

PAS 68 is the most recognised standard in the world, it’s the standard that’s recognised by the British Standards (B.S) and the European Union (EU). PAS 68 is a British Standard (B.S.5950) that is recognised by UK and EU, most of the Middle East, Far East and in the Americas.

It was originally drawn up in 2005. Since then there have been several versions. The most recent being 2013.

The rating covers a wide range of products that can vary depending on the vehicle.

Since 2005 the PAS 68 security standards have been applied to several critical security products. Such as security barriers. Traffic barriers, Security Grilles, Security Bollards, Security shutters, machine-gun resistant glass, emergency exits, VIP Carriers.

All sorts of bollard companies around the world give a PAS 68 rating. The manufacturer can request a PAS 68 independently. Most manufacturers in the private and public sectors use an independent body assess their products. It’s advisable too, you’d have to be silly to bite the hand that’s fed you.

The requirements come from the Vehicle Dynamic Assessment. The real world threat environment has been assessed in the Vehicle Dynamic Assessment. Vehicles are new used in the real and often extreme threat environments. A wide range of vehicles are assessed including high speed, heavy vehicles and light speed. Light sports vehicles tend to represent the ones that can often pose a threat to security products.

They’re staged tests and challenge specific products with specified threats and are not replicated. Each attack is assessed according to how much damage it can cause to the product and what the threat is to humans.

It also needs to be able to classify the threats in order to specify a product to its requirements. The threat assessment has been independently developed by the European Union. Covered in PAS 68:2013 and PAS 69 risk assessment. Specific threats to vehicles are in line with the wider threat environment. Threats assessed are from the real environment that products are exposed to in the real world.
