BS PAS 183:2017

Smart cities. Guide to establishing a decision-making framework for sharing data and information services

Published by: 2017-03-31 / 2017-03-31 / 54 pages
BS PAS 183:2017 gives guidance on establishing a decision-making framework for sharing
data and information services in smart cities.

It covers:

  • a) types of data in smart cities;
  • b) establishing a data sharing culture;
  • c) data value chain ? roles and responsibilities;
  • d) purposes for data use;
  • e) assessing data states;
  • f) defining access rights for data; and
  • g) data formats/format of transportation.

This PAS aims to support the sharing of data and information services within
cities. For some cities there will also be a need to establish specific data sharing
agreements, particularly where data is being shared by multiple organizations
at once.

This PAS supports a transparent approach to making decisions and creating
specific data sharing agreements in order to fully realise the benefits and value
of data and information services in a city.

Missing data or misinterpretation of data can lead to the wrong actions being
taken by city decision-makers. A decision-making framework for sharing data can
help ensure that they have the best overall data on which to base decisions.

This PAS does not cover:

  • a) national security issues;
  • b) good practice for use of data by the citizen;
  • c) existing interoperability agreements between cities;
  • d) defining application programming interfaces (API) networks; or
  • e) any data sharing rules and regulations specific to a particular jurisdiction.

It is assumed that a security-minded approach to data sharing is used by cities.

NOTE 1 Requirements on establishing and implementing a security-minded approach
to data sharing are specified in PAS 185 (in preparation).

NOTE 2 Further details on the areas not covered in this PAS, including information on
relevant standards publications, are given in Annex A.

This PAS is for use by decision-makers in smart cities from the public, private and
third sectors. It is also of interest to any city organization wishing to share data.

Smart Cities. Developing project proposals for delivering smart city solutions. Guide

Published by: 2017-03-31 / 2017-03-31 / 58 pages
BS PAS 184:2017 gives guidance on developing project proposals for delivering smart
city solutions.

It uses case studies to illustrate good practice in smart city procurement and
creating viable, financially robust business cases for smart city projects. It is
relevant to projects of all sorts – not just ones that involve a procurement, and
not just ones that involve a technology component.

It is for use by city leaders from the public, private and community sectors. In
particular, it is targeted at project officers and commissioners of services within
local and city authorities, their senior managers and the procurement specialists
who support them.

The PAS is also of interest to suppliers of products and services to cities and
citizens, providing them with insight into what cities regard as good practice in
the development and procurement of smart city solutions.

This PAS does not cover:

  • how to develop the broader vision, strategy and operating model for a smart
    city that provides the optimal context for any specific smart city project – this
    is dealt with in PAS 181 and relevant linkages are highlighted throughout this
    PAS; or

  • how to manage the ongoing operation of a smart city solution once it has
    moved out of project development and into live running as part of the
    business-as-usual operation of the city.

BS PAS 2070:2013+A1:2014

Specification for the assessment of greenhouse gas emissions of a city. Direct plus supply chain and consumption-based methodologies

Published by: 2014-05-31 / 2014-05-31 / 36 pages
BS PAS 2070:2013+A1:2014 specifies requirements for the assessment of
greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of a city or an urban
area using two distinct methodologies. These recognize
cities as both consumers and producers of goods and
services, and provide a complementary insight of a
city’s GHG emissions. The GHG emissions assessment
methodologies are:

  • a direct plus supply chain (DPSC) methodology;
  • a consumption-based (CB) methodology.

The DPSC methodology captures territorial GHG
emissions and those associated with the largest supply
chains serving cities, many of which are associated
with city infrastructures. It covers direct GHG emissions
from activities within the city boundary and indirect
GHG emissions from the consumption of grid-supplied
electricity, heating and/or cooling, transboundary travel
and the supply chains from consumption of key goods
and services produced outside the city boundary (e.g.
water supply, food, building materials).

The DPSC methodology builds on the Global protocol
for community-scale greenhouse gas emissions (GPC)
[3], developed by the World Resources Institute (WRI),
C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group and ICLEI Local
Governments for Sustainability to include a wider
range of indirect GHG emissions, and is consistent with
emission sources covered by the GPC.

The CB methodology captures direct and life cycle
GHG emissions for all goods and services consumed by
residents of a city, i.e. GHG emissions are allocated to
the final consumers of goods and services, rather than
to the original producers of those GHG emissions. The
CB methodology does not assess the impacts of the
production of goods and services within a city that are
exported for consumption outside the city boundary,
visitor activities, or services provided to visitors.

A purely territorial accounting methodology, which
focuses on all GHG sources within a boundary is not
provided, but GHG emissions within the city boundary
can be calculated as a subset of the DPSC methodology.

Exercising due diligence in establishing the legal origin of timber and timber products. Guide to Regulation (EU) No 995/2010

Published by: 2012-11-30 / 2012-11-30 / 60 pages
BS PAS 2021:2012 gives guidance on Regulation (EU)
No 995/2010 laying down the obligations of operators
who place timber and timber products on the market
(hereafter referred to as the Regulation) [1]. In
particular it gives guidance on:

  • who is affected by the Regulation and their
    obligations (see Clause 3);

  • how to develop and implement a due diligence
    system to minimize the risk of illegal timber in the
    supply chain (see Clause 4 and Clause 5); and

  • good practices for responsible trade in timber and
    timber products that go beyond the minimum
    requirements of the Regulation, including
    communicating due diligence to interested parties.

This PAS also makes reference to the Commission
Implementing Regulation (EU) No 607/2012
of 6 July 2012 on the detailed rules concerning the due
diligence system and the frequency and nature of the
checks on monitoring organizations as provided for
in the Regulation (EU) No 995/2012 of the European
Parliament and of the Council laying down the
obligations of operators who place timber and timber
products on the market (hereafter referred to as the
Implementing Regulation) [2].

It covers those timber and timber products affected
by the Regulation, a list of which is given in the annex
to the Regulation. Examples of timber and timber
products covered by the Regulation include solid
materials like sawn hardwood and softwood, and
composite materials like particleboard, pulp, paper and
paper-based products like notebooks and envelopes
and some packaging when it is sold as a product.

The annex to the Regulation has been reproduced
in Table 1.

This PAS is also applicable to monitoring organizations,
where it can provide a benchmark for developing a due
diligence system and be used as a reference to help
appraise the services offered by such organizations.
