The Coal Trade Code was established in 1962 and sets down standards for bona-fide coal merchants, whereby they have to undertake to supply solid fuel of the best quality available, prepare and deliver the fuel to a high standard, adhere strictly to all Weights & Measures legislation, be able to offer advice on appliances, fuel types and safety and thoroughly investigate any customer complaints.

The Coal Trade Code offers the consumer the opportunity to buy their solid fuel in complete confidence from professionals who are proud to offer such high standards.

It also offers the consumer a line of recourse if there is a problem which cannot be resolved with their approved coal merchant.

In such a case, the Approved Coal Merchants Scheme has a National Co-ordinator who ensures that Members maintain standards and fully adhere to the Coal Trade Code.

The National Co-ordinator can be contacted at:

c/o Solid Fuel Association
7 Swanwick Court
DE55 7AS

Tel:  0845 601 4406 / 01773 835400

The Approved Coal Merchants Scheme is financed by the Solid Fuel Association and the Coal Trade Code is administered by a National Panel with an Independent Chairman.
