MCS have announced a range of standard changes for MCS Installers.
MCS has published updates to several MCS Standards.
“The Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) will shortly be publishing updated installation standards for heat pumps (MIS 3005) and solar thermal (MIS 3001) and an updated Heat Emitter Guide (MCS 021). These standards are referenced in the RHI regulations and we intend to update the regulations to refer to the new standards.
There will be a transition period for the MCS Standards and if your heating system is installed in that period it can be certified to either the old or the updated standard. If your heat system is certified to the updated standard you will not be able to apply for the RHI until the changes to the regulations come into force. You will still have 12 months from commissioning of your heating system to apply for the scheme.”
The standards that have been updated are listed below;
- Installer certification scheme requirements (MCS 001)
- Solar heating standard (MIS 3001)
- Heat pump standard (MIS 3005)
- Heat emitter guide (MCS 021)
- Additional requirements for MCS installers to become Green Deal authorised (MCS 023)
- MCS Scheme Matrix
