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.

The Microgeneration Certification Scheme has published MCS 007 Issue 5.0.

The update includes:

MCS 007 clause 8.1.4:

‘Evidence in accordance with MCS 011 shall be provided of actual testing of products at a relevant test point preferably selected from those defined in Table 2a.

However, providing the heat pump has achieved MCS certification on or before 25th September 2015, evidence in accordance with MCS 011 using test points detailed in Table 2b shall be used if those in Table 2a are not available.’

For Certification Bodies only: MCS 026 SCOP_SSHEE_v1.0_FINAL is now live. You will be able to use this calculator for heat pump product verification.

Please can Certification Bodies make sure their manufacturers are aware of the updated product standard.
