Abstract
We compare predictions based on small x (QCD) dynamics with recent data for deep inelastic events containing forward jets or forward $\pi^{0}$mesons. We quantify the effect of imposing the (higher order) consistency condition on the BFKL equation and study uncertainties inherent in the QCD predictions. We also estimate the cross-section for the forward production of two jets.
