The Stove Industry Association is the UK trade association for the sustainable solid fuel stove sector.

Formed in 2008 our members include manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, retailers and installers of stoves, flue and chimney systems, fuel, glass and components, and key industry stakeholders such as testing laboratories, sweep associations and chimney sweep businesses, and competent person schemes.

The objectives of the SIA are:

  • To represent to government the industry perspective on legislation affecting stoves and to promote the benefits and environmental advantages of sustainable solid fuel stoves.
  • To emphasise that the members of the SIA commit to ensuring that their products meet the appropriate standards of quality, safety, efficiency and emissions.
  • To independently promote the nature of SIA members’ products and services and to advise the public on how they can assess the quality, safety and efficiency of these products.
  • To maintain an independently audited system to monitor stove sales trends in the UK.
  • To work with industry advisory and accreditation bodies to advise them of any issues which fall within their remit and are necessary to fulfil the objectives of the SIA.
  • To undertake any activity, including independent research, which will further the understanding of the advantages of sustainable solid fuel stoves and their context in government future strategies and media coverage.
