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.

MCS temporarily suspends the registration of solar thermodynamic products on the MCS installation database.

MCS has completed an initial review of thermodynamic products (including solar thermodynamic panels), and as a result, MCS has now taken the decision to temporarily suspend the registration of solar thermodynamic products within the MCS installation database until requirements for the installation of this product type can be developed by the Scheme.

This decision does not mean that the products cannot be installed in the UK, simply that they cannot be registered within the MCS installation database. As such from 19th November 2012, no further installations will be allowed to be registered within the MCS installation database, and the product will be unavailable for selection.

MCS is already working with a number of manufacturers to develop requirements for this product type either by extension to the existing MIS 3001 or MIS 3005 or a brand new Scheme document if appropriate. Please click here to view a copy of a letter sent to all MCS certified solar thermal installers on 5th November 2012.
