The UK Microgeneration Certification Scheme (UKMCS) is to go live in August H&V News has learned.
The UKMCS is the third-party certification scheme for installers and product manufacturers wishing to install or sell renewable products.
It was supposed to go live on 30 April this year, replacing the Clear Skies and Photovoltaic accreditation programmes which officially closed on March 31.
However, its start date was pushed back while the scheme underwent further development and more accreditation assessors were trained.
A spokesperson from the Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform said the scheme would undergo some changes, details of which would be revealed at its launch.
