Draft PAS 183 on Smart cities

This Publically Available Specification (PAS) provides guidance on establishing a decision-making framework for sharing data and information services in smart cities.

Objectives of the consultation

This PAS aims to support data sharing in cities and between cities, and the establishment of data sharing agreements, particularly where data is being shared by multiple organizations to transform the delivery of city services. Missing data or misinterpretation of data can lead to the wrong actions being taken by city decision-makers. A decision-making framework for sharing data can help ensure that they have the best overall data on which to base decisions.

This PAS covers the following: 

  • types of data in smart cities;
  • establishing a data sharing culture;
  • data value chain – roles and responsibilities;
  • purposes for data use;
  • assessing data states;
  • defining access rights for data; and
  • data formats/format of transportation.

This PAS is for use by decision-makers in smart cities from the public, private and third sectors. It can also be of interest to any city organization wishing to share data.

The consultation closed on 21 October 2016.
