PAS 125 is the industry agreed technical specification for the vehicle body repair process.
It details minimum requirements for competent personnel, appropriate and well-maintained equipment, suitable repair methods and quality for repair materials.
PAS 125 is owned and maintained by BSI, the National Standards Body.
PAS focuses on the four key elements of repair – methods, people, equipment and materials, as well as repair process management, with an emphasis on continual improvement.
As a result, PAS 125 directs bodyshops to the achievement of a safe and technically sound repair.
With over 4,000 bodyshops in the UK, only around 400 have so far achieved the PAS 125 Kitemark .
