Gaining MCS is a straight forward process, you just need the right elements in place

Gaining certification for the standard will open up many doors for your business. There is a huge drive to get existing homes more energy efficient to meet the targets of the UK being carbon neutral. To get these homes up to standard, millions of pounds of funding is around in the form of public and private sector contracts and through the Social Housing Decarbonisation Funding (SHDF), Energy Company Obligation (ECO) and more. However to benefit from these opportunities you need to be MCS certified and TrustMark registered.

MCS Certification

MCS isn’t as complex as you may think and you probably just need a little more clarity around what it entails:

The first step is to make sure you have all the documentation in place that meets the standard. If you do not have one, don’t worry! In the first instance you can access our MCS checklist what documents you may be missing.

Next you need to ensure competence of all of your installers and operatives. This means they need to have the relative qualifications and certifications to carry out the technologies which you are installing.

To make sure you are compliant you will need the relevant documentation to prove that you are insured correctly form an organisational point of view and to be able to provide insurance backed guarantees to meet TrustMark Requirements.

Once you have all of your paperwork in place, then you are ready for your first stage of assessment! To progress with this, you just need to complete our online application. Once our MCS team receive this, they will be in touch to provide a price and a quotation for the assessment process.

Once you gain certification, there are so many benefits!
