Ecodesign Regulation for solid fuel space heating appliances

The Ecodesign Regulation for solid fuel space heating appliances came into force in the UK on 1st January 2022. All stoves manufactured from that date onwards must comply with the requirements of Ecodesign.

Members of the Stove Industry Alliance were well ahead of the game. In 2017 the SIA Ecodesign Ready scheme was launched. All appliances showing the SIA Ecodesign Ready logo have been verified as meeting the efficiency and emission requirements of the Ecodesign Regulation.

This mark has been awarded to wood burning appliances that meet the five fundamental requirements of the Regulation (EU) 2015/1185 24/5/2015 for efficiency and emissions – NOx, CO, PM (Particulate Matter) and OGCs (Organic Gaseous Compounds). It does not imply that these stoves meet all requirements of Ecodesign regulations, such as product labelling and instruction manuals, which came into force in 2022. Other areas of compliance were not examined for the SIA Ecodesign Ready scheme.

The SIA Ecodesign Ready scheme highlighted SIA Members’ commitment to improving appliance design so that their stoves are cleaner, more efficient and contribute to improving our environment through lower emissions well ahead of the 2022 implementation deadline.

What became clear as stove technology developed to meet the new Ecodesign criteria is that many appliances were capable of far exceeding Ecodesign requirements by offering even further reduced emissions and further enhanced efficiency.

In 2020 the clearSkies certification scheme was launched. Initiated by the industry through the SIA, clearSkies is designed to drive the development of cleaner and more efficient appliances and it is open to all manufacturers of solid fuel stoves and fireplaces.

Consumers can also now look for the clearSkies Mark when choosing their new wood burning stove or fireplace.

clearSkies is an objective and independent emissions and energy performance certification scheme for stoves and fireplaces. As well as identifying those appliances that meet Ecodesign regulations and are Defra exempt (clearSkies Level 3), clearSkies also distinguishes those appliances that go beyond the requirements of Ecodesign with a further reduction in emissions and even better efficiency (clearSkies Levels 4 & 5).

You can find out more about the scheme by watching the clearSkies explainer video.
