What are OGBs?
Operational Guidance Booklets (OGB) are a series of booklets that guide and support Forestry Commission staff in sustainably and legally managing the public forest estate. OGBs help us to deliver the objectives of the UK Forestry Standard and other country-based policies, and meet the certification requirements of the UK Woodland Assurance Standard (UKWAS). They cover many subjects, including for example:
- forest certification;
- contract management; and
- timber transport.
The series is regularly reviewed and updated. Click on the links below to read a brief overview of each:
