Consultation opens on UKWAS 5 Second Revision Draft

Stakeholders can now make comment on the Second Revision Draft of UKWAS 5.

The consultation draft has been prepared by a chamber-balanced working group reflecting economic, environmental and social interests taking full account of stakeholder input.

Working group chair, Peter Wilson, thanked all those who had responded to the previous consultation round saying:

“We had fantastic feedback from stakeholders in terms of quality and quantity. Thank you for taking the time to share your knowledge and thoughts with the working group. After much discussion, the working group has prepared a Second Revision Draft based on the input received and its own further thinking”.

Mr Wilson urged stakeholders to read through the draft and submit further comments by 30th November:

“This is the final consultation round so it is more important than ever to have your say on the Second Revision Draft. Stakeholder feedback has played a huge role in the development of this second iteration so please share your thoughts with us once more so we can finalise UKWAS 5”.

The aim is for a new fifth edition of the UKWAS standard to be effective from April 2023.
