PAS 79:2012 is the BSI Publicly Available
Specification (“PAS”) that provides “Guidance and a Recommended
Methodology” for fire risk assessments.
Please note that strictly
speaking, PAS 79:2012 is not a standard nor a specification - it merely provides
guidance and a recommended methodology. However, at this stage, it is our
view that this is the most appropriate document upon which the framework of
risk assessments may be based.
PAS 79:2012 supersedes PAS 79:2007 which is withdrawn.
