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:
