UKAS certificate

MCERTS is the Environment Agency’s Monitoring Certification Scheme. The scheme is used as framework for businesses to meet the regulator’s quality requirements.

MCERTS is highly respected in the world of stack emissions monitoring. The scheme offers accreditation for organisations and personnel and the use of accredited equipment, ensuring that the highest standards of monitoring are observed. Under the EPR, companies with A1, and more recently A2 permits are mandatorily required to have compliance sampling undertaken to the MCERTS performance standard.
