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.

Today MCS has published new issues of MCS 005 (Product Certification Scheme Requirements - Photovoltaic Panels) and MCS 017 (Product Certification Scheme Requirements - Bespoke Building Integrated Photovoltaic Products) to correct minor errors.

MCS 005

The standard has been amended to remove Note 2 in the Scope which referred to the development of MCS 017.

The note was removed as MCS 017 has been published.

As the mandatory implementation date in Issue 2.4 of MCS 005 was 18/09/2017, the mandatory implementation date of Issue 2.5 will also be 18/09/2017.

MCS 017

The standard has been updated to correct an incorrect reference in the foreword.

Bespoke building integrated PV products must be tested in accordance with MCS 017 Issue 1.2 from the date of publication - 16/06/2017.
