No need to remember another password

Accessing PAS 2030 Online couldn’t be simpler – from the first time you click on your unique URL you’ll be logged straight into your dashboard and can start using the specification right away.

Access codes and unique URLs

This access URL is for your own personal, individual use. Circulating this URL will breach the terms and conditions of your licence agreement and put you at risk of loss of access and prosecution. BSI monitors usage of all individual accounts.

If you’ve received an access code instead of a personalized URL, you’ll need to register your name, company and email address so that we can set up your account. Just go to and complete the registration form. You’ll immediately receive an email containing your unique URL.

Your personal details

Telling us your name and company will help us to ensure that only you have access to your subscription. These details will appear as a watermark when you download your PDF, and are also displayed on your dashboard.

Your licence grants you 12 months’ access following purchase. To ensure that you enjoy an uninterrupted service, you can renew within the last month; however, if you want to repurchase the standard at a later date, you can do so through the BSI Shop at any time. PAS 2030 Online will remember who you are, restore your preferences, and allow you to pick up where you left off.

My sections

PAS 2030 Online enables internal bookmarking of the sections of the standard which are most relevant to you. Clicking on the star icon next to the title of the section you’re viewing adds that section to “My sections”, so that you access your content quickly from the dashboard. You can also add to “My sections” directly from the table of contents.

Clicking “Print my sections” will prepare a print-friendly version of “My sections”.
