To improve the quality of the authoritative record of buried asset locations at source, via the controlled
sharing of high-accuracy utility survey data with asset owners.
Our Goals and Principles
Inaccurate and incomplete underground utility location maps are a major cause of accidental damage
to buried utilities, endangering lives, causing disruption, introducing uncertainty, risk
and additional cost into construction projects, and having a negative impact on the UK economy
and society as a whole.
We believe that control over, and responsibility for, the authoritative record of utility locations
should remain with the asset owners.
We believe that PAS128:2014 and PAS256:2017 provide useful and objective standards, and wish
to promote stronger understanding and adoption of these standards across surveying, utility,
contractor, construction and local government sectors.
We believe that Utility Survey data, captured and stored in accordance with the standards set
out in PAS128:2014 and PAS256:2017 is an invaluable source of information in improving the
accuracy, completeness and currency of the data held by the asset owners.
We believe that informal “on the spot” reports regarding the disposition of buried utilities
can also be a useful source of information if routed efficiently and correctly to asset owners.
