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 (MCS) will be releasing a change to the MCS Installation Database (MID) on Thursday 5th November.

From 5th November, when you create a MCS Certification you will be asked to clarify whether the installation is domestic or non-domestic, and provide further details regarding the insurance warranty provider and insurance policy if applicable.

The changes are detailed below:

First new question

“Is the installation intended for domestic or non-domestic use?”

  • Domestic
  • Non-Domestic


Second set of questions

If non-domestic has been selected, an option will appear for you to indicate that no insurance policy has been issued.

For domestic installations or certain non-domestic installations, the details below must be provided:

Insurance Warranty Provider  Select from a drop down list of providers 
Insurance Policy or Certificate Number Enter the insurance policy or certificate number 
Insurance Policy or Certificate Start Date Enter the insurance policy or certificate start date
