It contains requirements for the management of road recovery operations with the aim of increasing safety and promoting best practice. 

PAS 43 is used by operators and purchasers of assistance services. The courts and the Health & Safety Executive also use it as a benchmark for safe roadside working practices.

It specifies requirements for minimizing the safety risks to roadside assistance providers. It covers standards for the safe operation of vehicle breakdown, recovery and removal by roadside assistance providers.
