PAS128 - Utility Search
PAS 128 is a specification for underground utility detection, verification and location. Published by the British Standards Institute, it sets out to establish industry best practice for conducting utility surveys. Within this specification, a desktop utility search, or “Type D Survey” is a prerequisite to any subsequent onsite detection.
