MCS Installation Database undergoing maintenance from 15.00 on Friday 25th July.

The MCS Installation Database (MID) will be undergoing maintenance and will not be accessible from 15:00 on Friday 25th July. Please do not try to access the database during this time as you will be unable to generate certificates and it is unlikely that any MCS certificates will be sent out.   We expect the website to be unavailable for at least 2 hours and an update will be placed on the news and events section of the MCS website when the maintenance is complete.

As part of the maintenance work, MCS will be implementing some upgrades to the MID which will impact the registration of heat generating technologies only. The upgrades include:

  • A change to the format of the MCS installation certificates for heat generating technologies. The certificate will be tailored for the technology being registered. Therefore you will notice that additional information will appear on heat generating technology installation certificates.
  • A new bulk upload option will be available for the registration of multiple installations of heat generating technologies. Installers will need to download and complete the bulk upload spreadsheet which relates to the technology being registered.   
  • The installation registration form for solar thermal installations will be updated to allow the entry of Total Installed Capacity and entry of aperture area to 2 decimal places.
