UKWAS STANDARD

The UK Woodland Assurance Standard (UKWAS) is an independent certification standard for verifying sustainable woodland management in the UK.

A new fourth edition of the UKWAS  was introduced on 1 April 2018. This revised version was prepared by the UKWAS Steering Group and subsequently adopted for use in the UK by both the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) and the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC).
