Consultation opens on UKWAS 5 Second Revision Draft

Stakeholders are now being invited to 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.

Chair of the working group and Institute Fellow, Peter Wilson FICFor, said:

“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

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”.

We strongly encourage members to read through the draft and submit further comments via email by Tuesday 30 November.
