Standards Development

The UKWAS standard-setting process conforms to FSC and PEFC requirements.

The standard is reviewed and, if necessary, revised every five years. The steering group appoints a working group of standard-users and stakeholders to undertake the revision and the wider stakeholder community is able to provide input and make comment on drafts which are published for public consultation.

The standard-setting process is reviewed from time to time and prior to each revision to ensure continued alignment with FSC and PEFC processes.
