About Us

The UK Pellet Council (UKPC) is a trade association representing the interests of the UK wood pellet sector and is also the national licenser for the ENplus® certification scheme.

UKPC members are the producers, traders and service providers who successfully manufacture and distribute wood pellets for domestic and non-domestic heating throughout the UK.

As a national trade association, the UKPC regularly provides advice, guidance and quality management training to all its membership, and proactively promotes the correct use of the ENplus® scheme.

Furthermore, the UKPC awards the ENplus® license to all qualifying member companies who have undergone a rigorous external audit of their plant, equipment, facilities, procedures and training records, concluding in successful certification and the production of their unique ENplus® quality seal.

Rarely but if required, activities could also include investigating any misuse of the ENplus® trademark, managing any complaints regarding member companies in line with agreed procedures, or in extreme cases, managing any allegations of possible fraud.
