MCS certification of PV panels consists of two main stages: factory production control in accordance with MCS 010 where TÜV Rheinland will conduct a factory inspection visit, including an assessment to determine compliance and product compliance to MCS 005 which includes EN 61215 for crystalline PV and EN 61646 for thin film PV.
Testing conducted by TÜV Rheinland at one of their six accredited international laboratories can be considered for compliance with MCS 005. BRE Global will provide the final quality review for the UK market. More information on this service can be attained at the TÜV stand at the EU PVSEC.
