Further to the update on 9th January 2012 where MCS had become aware of a failure with regards to Evoco Energy 10kW wind turbine, we are pleased to confirm that the issue has been rectified and the Evoco Energy 10kW wind turbine is compliant with the MCS product certification scheme requirements for small wind turbines.
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 consultation on the competence criteria project being undertaken by MCS has now been launched. To access the consultation documents and respond, please follow the link below to get to the consultation documents. A video is also included which provides a background to the project and a quick summary of what the consultation is all about.
Thank you to everyone who has responded so far to the MCS Technical Competence Consultation. We have received an overwhelming amount of interest since the announcement, but we have noted that some people have requested more time to formalise their responses. In light of this, the steering group have agreed to revise the closing date to 5pm on 23rd July 2012.
A new working group has been established within MCS to consider and report on a suitable process to include competence criteria requirements in the MCS installation standards across all technologies and to identify Performance Criteria relevant to a company certification scheme. This is the Technical Competence Development Working Group.
