Applying to the BSL

To register your fuel on the Biomass Suppliers List (BSL), biomass suppliers must submit an application to the BSL Administrator. The application process asks for evidence to show that the fuel meets the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) sustainability and legality requirements. For more information on these requirements, please see the Sustainability Criteria page under the About tab.

BSL authorisation does not guarantee the quality of the fuel as it is not a quality scheme. Early in 2021 legislation was introduced that made a number of changes to the Renewable Heat Incentive. The changes to the RHI which impact upon accredited Biomass Suppliers List (BSL) fuel suppliers came into effect on the 1st April 2022. 

Before starting your application, please read the tabs on the left hand side for more information on how to complete your application correctly. It is also important to read the guidance documents which can be found under the Documents and Guidance tab. This will help to speed up your application process by ensuring you provide us with the correct information.
