About PAS 141

PAS 141 is a process management specification for the re-use of used and waste electrical and electronic equipment (UEEE and WEEE).

Developed by industry experts working with the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), PAS 141 has been developed to;

• improve the standards for the re-use and refurbishment of electrical and electronic equipment that has reached the end of its first useful life in the UK; and
• address the demand from consumers for assurance that the used electrical products they buy are electrically safe to use and functionally fit for purpose.

The overall governance of PAS 141 is undertaken by the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC), which also provides technical advice, strategic direction and guidance.

Copies of PAS 141 are available, at a charge, from the British Standards Institution (BSI) at www.bsigroup.co.uk.

The official launch of the PAS 141 Certification Scheme took place on 27 February 2013, at RDC’s facility in Braintree. To view the presentations from the event please click here.
