In the UK, the United Kingdom Woodland Assurance Standard (UKWAS) has been designed to ensure that it reflects the requirements of both the UK Forestry Standard and the Forest Stewardship Council's (FSC) GB Standard. It has been designed for use in the certification of UK woodlands and forests by independent certification bodies and addresses specific aspects of management or types of operation in turn. Clients who undergo third party audits and who are found to fully conform to the UKWAS Standard are allowed to carry the FSC registered trademark.
