MCS Technical Working Groups develop the MCS standards, which are predominantly based on international and European standards already in existence.
Solar Photovoltaic (PV) panels generate electricity by using solar cells to convert energy from the sun into electricity.
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.
Below is the standard required to be met for Solar PV products under the MCS scheme.
