The Approval Process
Applications for approval are accepted either from a Manufacturer or from an Agent/Sole Distributor of an appliance to the UK. The approval is based on the requirements as detailed in MCS 008; Product Certification Scheme Requirements: Biomass.
Where a Manufacturer decides to pursue MCS approval, a completed form 4-MCS is returned, together with the a CE Type Test Report, Factory Production Control Details, Technical Specification Details, Installation and User Instructions and Sales or Promotional Documents.
After recieving a completed and signed form 4-MCS, the approval inspection officer carries out an inspection of the submitted documents and produces a report which forms the technical file for review by the HETAS Ltd director of approvals and certification.
Upon successful approval the manufacturer may state in advertising and other publications that the appliance has been certified under the MCS scheme.
