About Ready to Burn

Scheme Overview

The Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA) Ready to Burn certification scheme is run by HETAS and Woodsure, both non-profit organisations supporting cleaner and safer choices for the use of biomass and other solid fuels, appliances and associated technologies.

Woodsure has been championing the use of less polluting dry wood which is verified by its independent inspectors as having a moisture content of 20% or less, meaning it burns with less smoke than wetter wood.

Woodsure Ltd is the DEFRA appointed Certification Body to administer the Ready to Burn Scheme as recognised in The Air Quality (Domestic Solid Fuels Standards) (England) Regulations 2020.

For suppliers looking for Ready to Burn certification for manufactured solid fuels, please visit the HETAS website.
