Grant launches G-CERT scheme
Published:  01 June, 2017

Grant UK has launched a new scheme called G-CERT, which aims to support engineers who wish to offer their customers MCS compliant installations, without having to undertake MCS accreditation themselves.

Through G-CERT, Grant UK can certify renewable installations for MCS accreditation on behalf of the installer, allowing the engineer to fit RHI-eligible systems for their customers without needing to be MCS-accredited.

Consequently, the installer spends less time doing the desk-based administration often associated with MCS, enabling them to spend more time on the road assisting their customers with their heating needs.

Under the G-CERT Scheme, Grant UK acts as the MCS-accredited organisation, assisting competent installers to complete renewable installations which will be eligible for RHI payments. From the early stages of an enquiry through to the completion of the installation, installers under G-CERT can benefit from Grant’s assistance throughout the process including heat loss calculations through to completing the necessary registrations.

“The time and costs associated with becoming MCS-accredited can sometimes be off-putting for installers,” explains Anna Wakefield, Marketing and Corporate Communications Manager for Grant UK.

“G-CERT offers these engineers the opportunity to access customers which they would otherwise be unable to serve, delivering MCS compliant installations to customers wishing to claim RHI without having to operate their own MCS Quality Management System.”

Installers wishing to join G-CERT must meet the Scheme’s eligibility criteria, which are set to ensure that the highest levels of quality workmanship and service are maintained. In turn, installers who join G-CERT will be giving their customers the added peace of mind that comes with MCS compliant installations.
