Standards and specifications
In collaboration with the British Standards Institution (BSi), and with the assistance of a range of stakeholders, CPNI has developed four Publicly Available Specifications and one European CEN Workshop Agreement.
You should bear relevant standards and specifications in mind when security planning.
CWA 16221: 2010 Vehicle security barriers. Performance requirements, test methods and guidance on application
A European CEN workshop agreement that combines the detail from BSI PAS 68 and PAS 69. It provides guidance on test methods for determining vehicle security barrier performance classification and also includes a series of informative annexes that advise on appropriate product selection, installation and use.
IWA 14-1:2013 Vehicle security barriers part 1: Performance requirement, vehicle impact test method and performance rating
A new international ISO International Workshop Agreement that combines and updates elements from PAS 68, PAS 69, ASTM F 2656 and CWA 16221, as well as new content. It specifies the essential impact performance requirement for a vehicle security barrier (VSB) and a test method for rating its performance when subjected to a single impact by a test vehicle not driven by a human being.
IWA 14-2:2013 Vehicle security barriers part 2: Application
A new international ISO document providing guidance for the selection, installation and use of vehicle security barriers (VSBs) and describes the process of producing operational requirements (ORs). It also gives guidance on a design method for assessing the performance of a VSB.
PAS 68: 2013 Impact test specifications for vehicle security barriers
Guidance on impact test methods, tolerances, test vehicle type and vehicle performance criteria. The standard provide assurance to organisations that a vehicle security barrier will provide a specific level of hostile vehicle impact resistance.
PAS 69: 2013 Guidance for the selection, installation and use of vehicle security barrier systems
Detailed guidance aimed at designers, planners, architects and security managers to ensure that hostile vehicle mitigation solutions are deployed effectively.
PAS 96: 2010 Defending food and drink
Guidance for the deterrence, detection and defeat of ideologically motivated and other forms of malicious attack on food and drink and their supply arrangements (copyright BSI, free to download under licence to CPNI).

PAS 97: 2012 A specification for mail screening and security
Comprehensive guidance on mail screening and security. This is aimed at assisting organisations in assessing the risks they face from postal threats, and implementing appropriate screening and security measures, either internally or outsourced.
