You are here: Home Government Affairs EPA's NSPS for Wood Burning Appliances

The NSPS Initiative

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) New Source Performance Standards, (NSPS) the program which governs emissions for wood burning appliances, has been updated for the first time in over 20 years. Initiated in 1988, the NSPS controls the sale and import of "wood heaters," also known as wood stoves.

This revision impacts wood and pellet stoves, outdoor hydronic heaters, wood warm air furnaces.HPBA's members partnered with the association in the fight against results that could be potentially harmful for our industry. Our legal, research and legislative staff have worked hard to effect a positive outcome for our industry and our members.

EPA's final NSPS can now be read here.
