  1. Safe for one extra year only. After that no. But i think this idea is perfect! >"Not fit to burn, only use as garden ornaments"
  2. >small supplier I think that's what's odd there don't seem to be any definitions flying around, it's almost as if it is being handed to the trade associations to sort out, and guess what, they'll organise it to price out small suppliers with a huge audit fee. The one year derogation for small suppliers arguable does not make it your worthwhile getting invested
  3. I realise there's a derogation for micro suppliers for a year or two, but during the consultation there was talk of small suppliers having to get audited - like QA/QC in order to be able to use the 'ready to burn' logo So has this been dropped? Is one allowed to sell wood without 'Ready to burn' certification - provided it is demonstrable <20%? It's fine if nobody knows - but certainly early on it wasn't just <20%, not just read to burn, it required (presumably expensive) Ready to Burn audit which of course will keep the trade associations happy as the Big Boys can put the little people out of business jack
  4. Has it been decided how small quantities (eg nets) can be sold by small suppliers? Is it enough to be able to prove that the firewood for sale is <20% moisture content - or does one have to prove it via (say) yearly audits from industry assessors (likely several hundred quid)?? thanks, Jack
