Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS)

Our UKAS accredited Microgeneration Certification Scheme is designed to allow renewables installers to benefit from work generated through Government energy efficiency incentives. Only a certified-MCS installer can carry out installation of a renewable technology to the required compliance and safety standards.

Stroma Certification is able to offer the following MCS schemes to renewables installers:

  • MIS 3001 'Solar heating systems'

Microgeneration installers also have the option of adding certification of our Competent Person Scheme to your membership, within the same assessment regime, allowing you to self-notify renewable installations in compliance with the Building Regulations.
