UKWAS 4 – Usability Survey – Results

July 2019 – The results of the UKWAS 4 Usability Survey are now available here UKWAS 4 survey results.


Dear UKWAS user,

As part of the UKWAS4 revision process which began in 2015, we decided to change how the UKWAS Standard was laid out and presented. We wanted to make the Standard more accessible and more easily usable by forest managers.

One of our main aims was to group the requirements more clearly into areas such as Management Planning, and Operations etc.

We now want to find out if these change have been successful, and whether the people who use UKWAS most have found them helpful.

We would be grateful if you could complete this short survey  – – and let us know what you think. Please do so before Friday 24th May 2019.

The results of the survey will be confidential. They will be used to create an anonymous feedback report with future recommendations to the UKWAS Steering Group and Board, as well as being considered at the time of the next revision.

Your suggestions and good ideas for how we can improve the Standard will be considered in 2020, when we will begin the next revision cycle for UKWAS.

If you want to know more about UKWAS, the revision process or this survey please email

Yours Sincerely

The UKWAS Board of Directors
