Woodstove with EN 13229 number but no !CBO number

I am not sure if the European approval number would be acceptable. Following, I have included a link to an article that states, "Before you buy, make sure a wood stove meets local air quality regulations. As a rule of thumb, the more efficient the stove, the less pollution it produces. Check with your local air pollution control district to see if there are regulations covering how efficient your stove must be." The EPA also has specific "approved" items that may or may not include the proposed stove.


Hope this information helps.
Thanks for your help, Annette, AND...
This is not a pollution control issue. It is a Fire Code safety issue or Building Code issue.
Does it work safely and is permitted for install within the US building codes.

Thanks anyway!
First, UL does certify solid-fuel fired appliances. All of the product testing standards in the United States for solid-fuel fired appliances are developed by UL.

Second, a product with a European number is intended for use in Europe, not in the United States. The installation codes are different between the two regions.

Third, all applicable model installation codes used in the United States (Uniform Mechanical Code, International Mechanical Code, and International Residential Code) reference UL 737, Standard for Fireplace Stoves. This is the standard for testing and certifying woodstoves.

As to whether or not the referenced woodstove can be installed is ultimately decided by the authority having jurisdiction.

You can install it per the Mechanical Codes as if it were a Franklin Wood Stove made from Grandpa's Metal Works & Foundry. The code provides where and how far from combustibles the old iron stove need to be. Go to NFPA 211 & NFPA for solid fuel appliances, it will also show reduction to, also see CMC pg. 150 figure and CPC pg. 71 figure.
Read the listing European EN 13229 and then merge/adopt (Worse case) it to our own codes for unlisted appliances. Also once that is done use Alt. Materials and Design to approve it if it needs it.
The Europeans have been using Metal solid fuel stoves a lot longer than we.
