New Fuel Quality Requirements

New Fuel Requirements

Are you aware of the upcoming changes being implemented by BSL or Ofgem regarding RHI fuel regulations?

In early 2021 legislation was introduced that made a number of changes to the Renewable Heat Incentive. The changes to the RHI which impact upon accredited Biomass Suppliers List (BSL) fuel suppliers come into effect on the 1st April 2022. The legislation places requirements on both self-suppliers AND commercial suppliers (Producers, Traders and Producer-Traders).

ALL wood fuel used in RHI certified boilers will need to be Woodsure certified. Without this certification, your RHI payments will stop.

  • If you have your own BSL number or you self-report you need to gain woodsure certification.
  • If you buy in BSL fuel from someone else, you will need to ensure that your supplier is certified.
  • If you use waste fuel, you do not need to apply for certification.

We can help;

With BSL numbers that do not have woodsure certification being withdrawn from use, it is essential that you act now. We can assist in obtaining certification for you and help you to create an onsite recording system that tracks all the information required for ongoing compliance.
