The 2018 version of the PAS 43 standard has been published and all previous registered organisations should be aware that it will immediately supersede the PAS 43:2015 version which will be withdrawn. Some of the changes in the 2018 version are updated requirements for recovery vehicles and associated equipment, plus enhanced training and competence requirements for recovery technicians, which also includes specialist personnel.

PAS 43 is the specification for the safe working of vehicle breakdown and recovery operations. The standard is sponsored by SURVIVE (Safe Use of Roadside Verges in Vehicular Emergencies) which exists to improve the safety of breakdown operatives, employees and customers at breakdown and recovery situations.
