Back in 1956 and 1968 there were clean air acts were introduced to deal with the extensive amount of smog that was caused from the heavy use of coal. Coal was used as the main resource to heat a home and also the industry. The acts were introduced to allow local authorities to control the emissions that were produced from domestic and commercial buildings. These areas were then introduced for 'smoke control area', since then many smoke free zones have been introduced  for stoves across many of the UK's large towns and cities. You can view a list of smoke control areas here.


Defra approved stoves have been made exempt from these smoke control areas and have passed tests to show that they only emit a certain amount of smoke at certain temperatures. These tests prove that the stove is suitable to burn wood in smoke controlled areas. It is important to use the correct fuel in a defra approved stove, there are numerous choices to choose from such as smokeless coal and smokeless wood.
