Working with the BBA to obtain your Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS)
The BBA works closely with product manufacturers in certifying products aimed at the construction of high-performance, energy-efficient buildings, that minimise their environmental impact.
We certify products and how they perform again criteria within;
Each one addressing energy efficiency, building sustainability and most importantly a building’s internal environmental conditions that affect the comfort of its occupants.
Which Renewable Technology can be MCS Certified?
Microgeneration products are technologies that produce heat or electricity from a renewable source (with a capacity of up to 45kW for heat; or up to 50kW for electricity).
BBA Certification provides Microgeneration Certification Schemes for a number of renewable technologies:
MCS004 – Solar Collectors (solar thermal)
MCS005 – Photovoltaic Panels
MCS006 – Small and Micro Wind Turbines
MCS012 – Pitched Roof Installation Kits for solar products
MCS014 – Combined Heat and Power Systems (CHP – Heat Led, CHP – Electricity Led)
MCS017 – Bespoke Building Integrated Photovoltaic (BBIPV)
MCS010 – Factory Production Control Requirements (FPC)
MCS011 – Testing Acceptance Criteria (including witnessing testing) UKAS accredited Testing Laboratory (No 0357) for weather tightness and resistance to wind uplift to MCS012
Full Agrément Certificates are also available for these products, including important information not covered by the MCS, such as Regulatory Compliance, Durability, Output Performance, Weatherproofing, Structural Stability and Practicability of Installation
