This PAS specifies requirements for establishing processes at organizational and project level, for effective engagement with stakeholders in connection with projects, programmes  and /or services that impact on the environment, society and economy.

NOTE 1  Annex A illustrates the relationship within this PAS between organizational capabilities at the corporate level and those required for implementation at the project/programme and service levels.

These requirements support the key elements necessary to enable successful implementation through:

Leadership  – responsible executive;

Competence – the right people with the right skills;

Design – a precise set of the major steps necessary;

Documentation – accessible and usable via the Stakeholder Engagement Plans (SEPs);

Tools and systems – necessary to support performance;

Measurement and audit – to provide assurance of benefits realization and compliance;

Continual improvement – incorporating experience and feedback.

NOTE 2  Projects may include, for example, construction works, transport and utilities systems, hubs and networks, information systems and solutions. Also, the organization may wish to apply the principles of this PAS to engagement with internal stakeholders in order to obtain understanding and buy-in to a particular approach or initiative.

It is applicable to organizations of all sizes involved in the implementation of any phase within the lifecycle of a project and/or service of any scale.

NOTE 3 This approach is intended to provide a more effective way of working and help to build a more inclusive and collaborative environment that opens the way to create enhanced performance and value. Annex B provides an example of the various lifecycle phases of a project.

NOTE 4 Attention is drawn to any applicable planning, legislative, contractual and regulatory requirements or policies, whether corporate or governmental.

This PAS provides a guide to fintechs on the terms and approach used by many financial institutions for collaboration and commercialisation of new fintech propositions.

Its intention is to provide a framework that will allow fintechs to better prepare for and confirm that they are ready to engage with a large financial institution. It provides an explanation of both the commercial considerations and the necessary checks and controls that need to be satisfied to meet business and regulatory demands.

Specifically it will provide:

* key terms and definitions;

* a framework of the categories information, checks and controls necessary to establish a commercial engagement;

* guidance on the preparation, data gathering and steps that a fintech can undertake to facilitate and speed-up the due diligence, on-boarding, commercial and contractual processes; and

* data protection and information security considerations.

It should be noted that financial institutions will have a differing risk appetites, dependent upon their business strategy, the customer segments they support, markets they serve and geographies in which they operate. It will also depend on whether the fintech is to be engaged directly with customers or internally within the financial institution. As such it would not be possible to provide a definitive single guide and process.

This PAS is not intended, therefore, to be a definition of the on-boarding process as this could vary considerably from institution to institution. However, to aid understanding, Figure 1 provides a generic view of the broad stages in taking a new fintech solution from idea to implementation at scale.

Whilst many fintechs are experienced in engaging with financial institutions and the on-boarding requirements, this PAS has been written from the perspective of helping early stage fintechs who may have little or no understanding of the process.

The PAS has been produced predominantly from the perspective of large established UK banking institutions. Whilst much of the guidance is applicable to other financial institutions it does not purport to be exhaustive and all encompassing.

The PAS does not therefore cover:

* specific statutory, regulatory or legal requirements which can be obtained elsewhere;

* every jurisdictional or geographic, regulatory or market specific requirement;

* in-depth definition of processes which may be applied as part of establishing an engagement;

* specific acceptance standards, as these may differ institution to institution; or

* guidance on open banking.

The PAS is predominantly for use by fintechs and other industry-related start-ups. It may, however, be of interest to banks and other financial institutions, accelerators, technology incubators and regulators.

This PAS gives recommendations for managing security risks that might lead to a compromise of safety in a connected automotive ecosystem.


The PAS covers both the entire connected automotive ecosystem and its constituent systems. The ecosystem includes vehicles (both those used on public roads, such as cars, and those used for off-road activities such as farming and mining), as well as road-side and other static infrastructure, communication channels between vehicles and infrastructure, servicing and repair facilities, digital services, data and information and other services that support the proper operation of road transport. All levels of vehicle automation and autonomy are in scope.


The PAS applies to risks that can affect a single system, a few systems, or are on a small scale. The PAS also gives recommendations for managing systemic risks – wider risks which might appear small, but which become more significant when interdependencies are considered and where the failure of a single or a few entities could result in more widespread failure.


The PAS is intended to be used by manufacturers, operators and maintainers of products, systems and services used in a connected automotive ecosystem. This includes manufacturers of vehicle subsystems, vehicle manufacturers, maintenance organizations, infrastructure operators, owners of large vehicle fleets, and digital service providers.


This PAS might be of interest to regulators and other stakeholders in the connected automotive ecosystem and to users/operators of vehicles.
