The Woodsure Assurance

The Woodsure quality assurance scheme provides woodfuel customers with the confidence that the fuel they purchase will be of consistently high quality, suitable to fulfil the specified requirements for the smooth, reliable operation of their biomass appliance.

We are committed to ensuring that standards are rigorously and consistently enforced.

Our responsibility to the consumer

Our approach is practical and robust to ensure that our producers and suppliers are responsible and conscientious. In the event that high standards are not maintained we will act quickly to address the issue and ensure the supplier rectifies the situation.

Certified producers or suppliers that fail to maintain the high standards they have committed to through Woodsure assessment and membership will be subject to a stringent review procedure before they can once more claim to be an approved fuel source.

Creating a vibrant woodfuel sector

We are a not-for-profit organisation with a mission to help, support and encourage the development of a vibrant woodfuel sector. Our purpose is to assure the success of the industry by establishing a universally recognised standard of quality assurance that will enable woodfuel consumers to trust and have confidence in our certified suppliers.

Future energy technology

Beyond this, our wider purpose is to protect our environment by encouraging the take-up of dependable, reliable, carbon-lean bioenergy systems that will help toward reducing atmospheric carbon-dioxide levels. We believe that woodfuel has an important role to play in meeting the nation’s future heat energy requirements.

Our aim is to encourage responsible, sustainable, best-practice methods throughout the woodfuel production sector. Our objective is to help build a dependable woodfuel supply infrastructure that will support the uptake of biomass energy technology.
