UKWAS review: reminder to stakeholders wishing to participate

Stakeholders are reminded that with preparations for the next UKWAS review well under way, the UKWAS steering group is looking for stakeholders to express interest in participating.

The steering group will appoint an independent chamber-balanced working group to review and, if deemed necessary, revise the standard.

At this stage, the UKWAS steering group is inviting stakeholders to express their interest in helping the process. The two main ways to participate are by asking to be added to the list of consultees and / or to express interest in nominating individuals to sit on the working group.

To note your interest in participating, please contact by April 30th 2020.
