Become a Certified Supplier

The Wood Fuel Quality Assurance Scheme is built around the industry agreed standard NWA 4:2009. To become a WFQA certified supplier of wood fuel, a supplier needs to apply to the Irish BioEnergy Association to initiate the certification process.

IrBEA will guide the applicant through the application procedure and certification process. These forms are PDFs; to view these files you will need the Adobe Acrobat Reader, which you can download for free here.

We recommend that persons looking to join the WFQA first draw up a quality manual, below we have a template Quality Manual for download. Please download this manual and modify to reflect your own operation.
