If you operate a Bagging Plant and need to be registered please email fuelregistration@epa.ie with your contact details.

Registration of Specified Fuel Suppliers

The Regulations also require certain operators in the residential solid fuel supply business to register with the EPA before 31 December 2011 and every two years thereafter.  Those who must register include wholesalers and retailers whose sole or main business involves the sale of bituminous coal (i.e. those with more than 50% of annual turnover from bituminous coal). There is currently no charge for registration.  To register as a Solid Fuel Supplier download the application form for registration of solid fuel suppliers, complete, sign it and return to the address provided on the form.

Note:  This requirement does not apply to the majority of general retailers for whom the sale of smoky coal is not their main business activity.

If you are a wholesaler of bituminous coal or are an obligated retailer please send an email to fuelregistration@epa.ie with your contact details.
