Ready to burn, Woodsure Wood - NEW Law on 1st May


Woodsure Ready to Burn wood

Good afternoon,

I hope you are keeping warm as it's not very pleasant outside today!!

Thought I'd just remind you what's happening on 1st May with regards to the new law that comes into force with regards to the selling of wood.

The Air Quality (Domestic Solid Fuels Standards) (England) Regulations 2020 will come into force in May 2021. This brings into Regulation ‘Ready to Burn’ and its logo (as seen above) as a way of recognising which fuels are suitable for future use, both for wood and solid mineral fuels.

These Regulations are made under section 87 of the Environment Act 1995 (c. 25) and they make provision restricting the sale of certain solid fuels, and provide for the enforcement of breaches of these Regulations by a local authority.

Legislation will become effective from 1st May 2021 for the majority of firewood suppliers.

Air quality and wood fuel has become a hot topic and stove owners are being asked to think about the impact of burning poor quality firewood has on the environment. A stove is only as good as the wood it burns and so the Ready to Burn stamp of approval will reassure those who purchase firewood/briquettes with its logo that they are dry enough and immediately ready to burn.
