The BSI are inviting colleagues to comment on the following draft during its 4 week consultation period:


PAS 183, Smart cities – Guide to establishing a decision-making framework for sharing data and information services


A PAS is a sponsored, fast-track informal standardization document that is developed through a consensus-building process facilitated by BSI Standards Limited. The development of PAS 183 has been sponsored by the Cities Standards Institute.


A PAS should not be regarded as a BS, EN or ISO standard.


To download, review and comment on the draft, please go to and register for free online (new users) and log in.


The closing date for consultation is Friday 21 October 2016.


As members of the steering group for this BSI guidance, iStandUK will be taking an active part in this consultation. We ask that you disseminate this information to your organization members and other relevant stakeholders.


The BSI ask that, where possible, comments should be submitted by one person from your organization to ensure that no conflicting comments are submitted by members of the same organization and to avoid repetition.


Please note that only comments submitted electronically through the online Draft Review System by the date given will be accepted.


Thank you in advance for your time and help with this project. We are excited to hear your input.
