This PAS specifies requirements for establishing a framework for the security-minded management of smart cities and their associated infrastructure, as well as of data, information and services, used to deliver city services. It outlines methods for identifying security threats to data, information, physical infrastructure and systems that might affect the people who live, work in, or visit the smart city. It also sets out parameters for mitigating other adversities on security systems.

It covers the use of trustworthiness and security controls applicable to the smart city framework (SCF) (see PAS 181), smart city concept model (SCCM) (see PAS 182) and data framework used for sharing data and information services (see PAS 183).

The security-minded approach specified in this PAS covers all aspects of security relating to smart cities, including:

- governance;

- personnel;

- citizens, i.e. residents, businesses, visitors and commuters;

- organizations;

- process; and

- physical security.

The approach also covers aspects of the environment of the smart city, including:

- scale;

- organizational complexity;

- complex service delivery and ownership of smart city infrastructure;

- response to incidents, events, and changing risk levels; and

- extent of autonomy.

This PAS covers technological aspects relating to the secure delivery of services, including:

- safety;

- authenticity;

- availability (including reliability);

- confidentiality;

- integrity;

- possession;

- resilience; and

- utility.

The framework enables the development of an overall security strategy for the handling, management and sharing of data and information that can be used to inform and guide the development and delivery of smart city projects and subsequent operation, delivery, evolution and disposal of assets and services.

The framework specified in this PAS can be used to create and cultivate an appropriate, risk-based safety and security mindset and culture across the many organizations, services and individuals which use shared, disclosed and derived data and includes the need to monitor and audit compliance.

This PAS is for use by decision-makers in smart cities from the public, private and third sectors.

NOTE PAS 185 is consistent with the approach set out in PAS 1192-5 regarding the security-minded management of building information modelling, digital built environments and smart asset management. This consistency is important as it allows appropriate, sharing or disclosure of geospatial, dynamic and asset information in support of service planning, development and delivery in smart cities.

This British Standard provides requirements and test methods for type testing anchor systems that are installed and tested in the base materials specified by the manufacturer for:

a) restraint systems;

b) fall arrest systems;

c) rope access systems;

d) work positioning systems;

e) rescue systems; and

f) evacuation systems.

This British Standard covers anchor systems intended for one or more users simultaneously and specifies the maximum number of users for each type of anchor system.

NOTE  Where the manufacturer intends to rate their anchor systems for more than the specified maximum number of users, it is recommended that they liaise with an appropriate test house, taking into account the principles of this British Standard and develop a test specification accordingly.

This British Standard is not applicable to:

1) equipment conforming to BS EN 516 or BS EN 517;

2) type C non-load-limiting anchor systems (see 3.3.2) for rope access and work positioning, rescue – accompanied descent and evacuation as they are considered not to be appropriate for such use; and

3) type A and type C load-limiting anchor systems (see 3.3.1 and 3.3.2) for rope access and work positioning, rescue – accompanied descent, rescue – remotely or self-operated – redirect attachment and evacuation, as they are considered not to be appropriate for such use.

This British Standard is intended for use by manufacturers, installers and users of anchor systems and also other interested parties, e.g. architects and structural engineers, including those responsible for the design of safe access and egress on buildings and structures.
