MCS was designed with input from product and installer representatives, consumer groups, trade associations and technical experts from across the microgeneration and renewable industry. The MCS Technical Working Groups develop the MCS Standards and Scheme documents, which are predominantly based on international and European standards already in existence. Some scheme documents were/are newly developed for MCS purposes.
Many members of the Technical Working Groups sit on European committees helping to develop the European Standards. This helps to harmonise MCS with existing EN standards, and ensure that the MCS standards and scheme documents are all kept up to date accordingly.
