MCS is a mark of quality that demonstrates adherence to the recognised industry standards, highlighting compliance and competency. It’s supported by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS).
MCS works with industry experts to define, maintain and improve the quality standards of low carbon energy technologies and contractors. It offers certification that gives confidence to consumers that they are using a high-quality product that will be installed by a skilled and competent engineer. Having an MCS certified product installed by an MCS certified contractor means customers can be confident that their system will perform efficiently and safely.
