What is the SIA?
The Stove Industry Alliance (SIA) was formed in 2008 to promote and explain the benefits of wood-burning stoves.
From the outset, the SIA has sought to inform the public and government about the carbon saving benefits of wood burning stoves. In 2017 the SIA launched the Ecodesign Ready scheme. Ecodesign Ready stoves will meet the stricter Ecodesign emission limits coming into force in 2022 and are available now.
Ecodesign Ready stoves have been welcomed by Defra and the Mayor of London, as a significant way to reduce emissions. In order to secure this endorsement, the SIA has carried out independent tests to support / validate the industry viewpoint. The launch of Ecodesign Ready stoves was sponsored by Neil Parish, Chairman of the Select Committee on the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

The SIA has produced three new videos to help consumers understand the benefits of a SIA Ecodesign Ready stove, the importance of using dry wood and a guide on how best to light the stove.
