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 MCS Administrator has removed from its approved list of products four Biomass Boilers manufactured by Ekopower Heating Ltd as their certification has been withdrawn by BSI.

This means that an MCS Contractor will not be able to register the installation of these products on the MCS database or create an MCS Certificate for their customer at present.

 The products were removed as BSI received complaints from installers regarding unit performance, which was left unresolved by the manufacturer.

While this is not a common occurrence, as the standards for compliance are clearly set out by the MCS Administrator, MCS Contractors are urged to check that products are approved and available on the database prior to each installation.

The products currently removed from the approved list are as follows:

· EkoHeat 900 (BSI KM 602460/01)

· EkoHeat 1500 (BSI KM 602460/02)

· EkoHeat 2500 (BSI KM 602460/03)

· EkoHeat 4000 (BSI KM 602460/04)
