About MCS

MCS is a mark of quality and demonstrates
compliance to industry standards that companies
strive to meet. It highlights to consumers that
companies are able to consistently install or
manufacture to the highest quality every time.

MCS will be attending the Retro Expo conference and exhibition 30th October - 1st November 2012.

BSI has launched its Consultation on proposed revisions to PAS 2030.

The consultation on MIS 3001 and MCS 004 is now closed. We will shortly be communicating our findings once the MCS Solar Thermal Group has reviewed all of the responses. Thank you for your submissions during this consultation period.

In this quarterly newsletter we will aim to provide useful information and updates to our MCS certified companies and other stakeholders in light of the policy changes and the developments and improvements within the scheme.

The recent MCS criteria consultation closed on Monday 23rd July, we are now reading through each of the responses and listening to the feedback we have received through the process. In September we will announce the next steps and any plans in relation to the project.

Following enquiries regarding compliance with the aspect of the MCS Wind Turbine product standard that requires publication of performance data, we are pleased to announce that the Certification Bodies have investigated the matter and are now able to confirm full compliance with this requirement.

MCS has released guidelines for anyone wishing to submit a complaint regarding the scheme or MCS installer companies and products. To view the complaint guidelines please visit the Consumer section of  www.microgenerationcertification.org.
