Applicants for the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) with biomass boilers must submit an emissions certificate or environmental permit for their boiler with their application. We have seen that some applications have had difficulty in getting acceptable certificates for their boilers so we have created the certificate template below to help testing laboratories ensure all air quality information we require is included when a certificate is issued. Please pass this template to your manufacturer to alert them to what you need.

This certificate has recently been updated but previous versions of this template may still be used and submitted as part of your application.

For tips on how to complete the certificate, see our update for biomass boiler applicants.
