The Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) is an industry-led and nationally recognised quality assurance scheme, supported by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS). MCS itself is a BS EN ISO/IEC 17065:2012  Scheme and was launched in 2008. For further information on the history of MCS please download this document.

MCS certifies microgeneration products used to produce electricity and heat from renewable sources. MCS also certifies installation companies to ensure the microgeneration products have been installed and commissioned to the highest standard for the consumer. The certification is based on a set of installer standards and product scheme requirements which are available in the MCS Standards section of this website.

MCS covers electricity generating technologies with a capacity of up to 50kW, and heat generating technologies with a capacity of up to 45kW.
