About the scheme

This new law restricts the sale of wet wood sold in volumes under 2m3 (i.e. two dumpy bags) and makes it easier for consumers to identify and buy dry wood that’s certified as Ready to Burn and therefore ready for immediate use without further drying.

Where consumers buy their fuel in bulk, suppliers will be required to provide an advisory notice that the wood requires further drying before use. 

The Ready to Burn mark is also applied to Manufactured Solid Fuels (MSF). Authorised fuels are certified by HETAS to carry the certification mark and included on the list of authorised fuels for England by the Secretary of State on
