Join us in London to celebrate the launch of BSI's first Smart Cities standard – PAS 181 Smart City Framework.

At the event you'll find out how the standard will make a difference in helping to develop the smart cities of the future, how the standard will be important to businesses, and you’ll be able to ask questions and network with smart city experts.

About PAS 181 – Smart City Framework

This principle-based standard establishes a good practice framework for city leaders to develop, agree and deliver smart city strategies that can transform their city's ability to meet and deliver its future challenges and aspirations.

The smart city framework distils current good practices into a set of consistent and repeatable patterns that city leaders can use to help them develop and deliver their own smart city strategies.
