ENplus – Whole chain certification for wood pellets


The ENplus scheme was initiated by the German Pellet Institute in 2010 and developed for assuring the quality of wood pellets for small furnaces. The certification scheme covers the complete supply chain from production to the final trader.

ENplus was developed by the European Biomass Association, which hosts the scheme owner, the European Pellet Council (EPC). It strives to assure premium quality and good practices for operators whose activities consist of pelletising, storing, bagging, trading and transporting wood pellets for domestic boilers and stoves.

ENplus includes the entire wood pellets chain – from production to trade to consumer delivery.

Control Union Certifications Germany is a recognized certification body for the scheme. In collaboration with our local offices in over 70 countries we can conduct certification inspections inside and outside Europe for pelletising, storing, trading and transporting of wood pellets. 

The scheme is built around two modules – production and trading – and focuses on the traceability and class of wood pellets for households. Download the programme manual from the ENplus website.

Certification is valid for three years. It includes annual audits for producers and traders with bagging stations, and a yearly audit for certified traders.

How you benefit

Through third-party verification, we motivate your (quality) claim independently towards your clients. Furthermore, traceability and contamination risks can be managed better by certifying your management system and/or your product.

With 200+ certification programs, we are able to conduct combination audits saving time and expenses for our customers.

As a result, you will benefit from a ‘front runner’ position in the eyes of investors, rating agencies and other analysts and have an improved stakeholder communication.

Our network of offices in more than 70 countries allows us to make certification more efficient and cost effective, whilst upholding the same stringent professional auditing and certification procedures.
