Regulatory Changes for Domestic Wood Heating

The Ministry of Environment has released a policy update describing proposed changes to the Solid Fuel Burning Domestic Appliance Regulation (SFBDAR), and is accepting comments on the proposal until mid-November. Adopted in 1994, the SFBDAR is targeted at reducing air pollution from domestic wood heating.

The objective of the current review and proposed revisions is to minimize impacts on human health and ecosystems by further reducing air pollution from domestic wood heating in British Columbia. Local governments may submit comments about the proposed SFBDAR revisions until Monday, November 16, 2015.
