Certificate Description


MCS is an industry-led quality assurance scheme, which demonstrates the quality and reliability of approved products and installation companies for heating systems. MCS is currently the only certification body approved by BEIS for the Domestic RHI scheme.Any other certification body would need to be accredited under EN 45011 or EN ISO/IEC 17065:2012 and be considered equivalent to MCS in order for Ofgem/BEIS to approve them as a certification body for the scheme. MCS have recently introduced Compliance Certificates for heat generating technologies. Compliance Certificates are effectively checklists which confirm that your heating system was installed according to MCS standards and records key information about the heating system.

Certification criteria are:

-where the plant is a biomass plant (MIS 3004)
-where the plant is a heat pump ( MIS 3005)
-where the plant is a solar thermal plant (MIS 3001)
