The UK’s only quality certification scheme that differentiates you as a responsible, trustworthy fuel producer or supplier.

At Woodsure, we certify producers of woodfuel to demonstrate that you can produce and deliver fuel at the correct standard for the end user's heating system.

How the Assurance Works

We certify producers and traders of firewood, woodchip, pellets, briquettes and hog fuel.

We do this by assessing the production process, testing products to industry standards and checking adequate controls are in place. The entire process is inspected, from sourcing of timber through to delivery, ensuring the customer receives fuel their appliance can burn.

Woodsure’s methods and procedures for woodfuel quality assessment have been devised to ensure a thorough and reliable proof of product. Whilst quality testing of woodfuel is an integral part of the Woodsure scheme it is not the only element. We take a holistic approach, providing the woodfuel consumer with confidence and assurance in product quality.
