MCS Certification

Our refreshing approach enables our customers to gain MCS certification.

MCS is the most recent standard that has been put in place to ensure renewable energy installers are operating to the highest quality for their customers.

Why do I need MCS Certification?

The Government and the larger energy providers are working towards an objective to ensure all existing properties are energy efficient by 2030.  Many contracts and funding schemes around the retrofit of renewable energy efficiency measures in buildings are stipulating that installers need to work to MCS Standards.

Along with TrustMark, PAS 2035 and PAS 2038, MCS is best practice in renewable energy installation for existing building stock. Installing to this standard provides your customers with the trust and confidence that your business is operating to a high quality.

Certification is always a benefit as it brings commercial opportunities, however there are other reasons why organisations are choosing MCS certification such as continuous business improvement, reducing risk and demonstrating social responsibility to climate change.

What is MCS?

MCS Certification

MCS stands for Microgeneration Certification Scheme, and the assessment process covers a range of aspects including:

Competency, training and qualifications of the installers for each technology

Demonstrating an understanding of the MCS standard

Ensuring a validated Retrofit Deign in compliance with PAS 2035 for each specific installation

Having a set of procedures/processes in place that meet the standard

Yearly onsite surveillance inspections

Customer care and legislation including technology performance calculations

The benefits to those who have MCS Certification

Access to funding for your customers, meaning huge opportunities for growth for your business

Demonstrating high quality service to all your potential customers

Having a robust management system in place will benefit your business in terms of improvement, effectiveness and efficiencies

Gaining a competitive edge within your industry

The process


The beginning bit

  • Ensure that you have the right processes in place for MCS. As we are a certification body, we can’t provide consultancy, however if you need help to do this, get in touch and we can point you in the right direction of consultants that can help.

  • Complete our online application form which gathers customer information and data around the MCS measures that you offer your customers.

  • We will provide a quotation once we receive your application form which is based on the information that you have provided.

  • If you are happy with our quote, simply sign and return the form.

  • An invoice will be issued and once your payment is made we move onto the next part.


The middle bit

  • You will be allocated one of our excellent MCS assessors and a head office assessment and technical inspection for your technologies will be scheduled.

  • You will need to provide the documents and information that your assessor requires and they will carry out your assessment at your head office and at location where the technologies have been installed.

  • If you have up to two technologies to inspect this will be completed in one day. If you have 3-5 technologies to inspect, this will take 2 days of assessment.


The ongoing bit

  • Once the technical site inspection is complete and any non conformances that have been identified have been addressed and verified a 12 month certification will be released.

  • To retain certification we will arrange to carry out surveillance assessments, this will be calculated and provided to you post certification.
