I’ve applied, what happens next?

Once submitted, your manual is assessed and any shortfalls or clarifications should be addressed.
An audit is carried out to assess the company procedures, the fuel is then sampled and tested. If all meet the Woodsure requirements, the test results and audit are independently assessed to ensure the outcome is fair.

How do I compose an operation manual?

Once you have applied you must produce a manual. There are 3 ways depending on the type of supplier you are and how much fuel you produce.

If you produce less than 750t each year, you will be provided with a link to a questionnaire, once you have applied to Woodsure. Your answers to the questionnaire will form your manual.

If you produce more than 750t each year you will need to use the templates which Woodsure has created.
– Wood briquettes
– Firewood
– Chip

If you don’t sell the fuel, i.e. you only use it in your own boilers, you will receive a link to an online form to produce your fuel quality manual. The manual is your procedures on how you produce a fuel and is what you will be audited to.

What do I get for applying?

Once certified you will get a certificate that covers each depot and each fuel you have applied for.

Quality assurance: provides a universally recognised mark of fuel quality and identifies the responsible, conscientious practitioners within this emerging industry that woodfuel consumers can trust. The Woodsure Certification scheme is both rigorous and practical and cost effective for your business.

Business support: we are committed to helping nurture this new market, providing woodfuel producers and suppliers with practical support, such as independent fuel tests, encouragement, and assistance to enable them to achieve and maintain the highest standards of quality.

Business opportunity: Woodsure certification is a valuable point of differentiation in the market and promotes customer confidence in your biomass product.

Promotional benefits: Feature the Woodsure logo on your website, leaflets, stationery to identify that they have fulfilled the required standards for high quality fuel production and distribution. You’ll also have the opportunity to be listed on the Woodsure ‘Find a Supplier’ search.

Regular newsletters – updates from around the industry direct to your inbox.

There are many opportunities for woodfuel producers in this market: demand for reliable, high quality woodfuel is increasing steadily with the growing take-up of both biomass boilers and woodfuel stoves. Biomass boilers are actively supported through the Renewable Heat Incentive
