Woodland Certification in the UK

The Introduction section of the UK Woodland Assurance Standard explains the background to the development of the certification standard.

This diagram illustrates how the UK Woodland Assurance Standard draws from both governmental requirements and those of the two leading global forest certification schemes to produce a certification standard that conforms to UK regulatory requirements and provides the tool necessary for woodlands to be independently verified as meeting the requirements of both these certification schemes. The responsibility for different aspects is also indicated.
