The Ecodesign of Energy-related Products (ErP) Directive came into force on 26th September 2015. MCS Heat Pump standards were updated to be in line with the directive.
A transition period has been in place since 26th September for Heat Pump products, however from 26th March 2016 a Heat Pump product must comply with MCS 007 v5.0 to remain MCS certified.
