New Solid Fuel Regulations

The new solid fuel regulations have been signed into law and can be accessed here. More information on the new regulations, including updated FAQ documents specific to Producers/Importers, Retailers, Householders and Couriers/Haulage Companies can be found here.

The primary focus of these regulations is on improving air quality and improving people’s health chances and outcomes, by restricting the retail, online and commercial sale of smoky fuels, including smoky coal, turf and wet wood. These fuels are proven to be a major contributor to air pollution in Ireland.
