MCS is an industry-led quality assurance scheme, which demonstrates the quality and reliability of approved products and installation companies.

Being MCS certified demonstrates to your customers that you install/manufacture to the industry-expected level of quality every time. MCS gives you a mark of quality which provides assurance.

If you install low-carbon heat measures such as heat pumps under government driven initiatives, you must be certified with the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS).

The Microgeneration certification Scheme (MCS) certifies low-carbon products and installations used to produce electricity and heat from renewable sources. MCS certification is a mark of quality and demonstrates your adherence to recognised industry standards, highlighting quality, competency, and compliance.

We’re here to simplify the process to achieving these measures by guiding you through the steps you will need to take to meet the requirements for MCS certification and taking care of the details towards your accreditation. We will provide you with the necessary tools to help your business complete this process.

In order to be MCS certified, these are the following things your company must possess:

Quality management system

  • A Quality Management System (QMS) is a collection of business processes focused on consistent delivery of requirements that meet customer needs and enhance their satisfaction
  • It is designed to make sure every installation meets every requirement of the relevant standard
  • A QMS can be on paper or electronic
  • To help you in your application, we have included QMS templates in our Download and Resources area
  • Registered Trading Address

    As part of the MCS certification requirements, your business must have a physical trading address registered with and verified by MCS

    Consumer Code Membership

  • It is mandatory for all MCS certified installers to be registered and comply with a Trading Standards Institute (TSI) Consumer Code
  • The aim of a consumer code is to improve customer service standards and will help you when dealing with domestic customers
  • Nominated Business Technical Person

  • To ensure your business meets the necessary MCS technical standards, you must nominate a competent individual whose role is set out in MCS standard 025
  • You can nominate yourself if you meet the technical competencies of this standard
  • Continual Improvement(CIP)

  • Having a CIP demonstrates to your customers that you actively look to improve your products, services, processes, and performance throughout your business
  • MCS standards require your business to have a CIP in place for you and your employees
  • These procedures should make sure any instances of non-conformity of the MCS standards, are corrected and prevented from being repeated
  • Access to External Documents

  • Having access to relevant external documents, such as building regulations, is required as part of the MCS standards
  • When using these documents and software for calculations, you must ensure you are working with the latest versions available
  • Use of Contracts

  • MCS standards require that a contract must be in place, for every installation, between you and the customer
  • Any work you subcontract out also needs to be managed through a formal subcontract agreement
  • We have included a guide on how to complete a contract in our Download and Resources area
  • Appropriate Record Storage System

  • The keeping of historic records of individual installations for at least six years
  • The recording of all complaints received and how they were resolved
  • How each employee involved in design, installation, set to work and/or commissioning demonstrates their competency against the competency criteria
  • Health & Safety Policy

  • The law states that every business must have a policy for managing health and safety, and that it complies with the requirements of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. (**Applicable if you have more than 5 employees)
  • It is also important to ensure your business is able to complete a risk assessment where appropriate
