MCS Standards

MCS Technical Working Groups develop the MCS standards, which are predominantly based on international and European standards already in existence.

Pitched Roof Mounting Kits

Pitched Roof Mounting Kits are used to ensure Solar PV Panels and Solar Collectors are secured when installed on a pitched roof. The mounting kits have been tested for weather tightness, fire spread and wind uplift.

MCS approved products satisfy rigorous and established European and International standards. In addition to laboratory testing, the product manufacturers also must undertake factory production control audits to show that they have the management systems in place to support the quality production practices and demonstrate the products at the end of the production line are of the same quality as those that are tested.
