The assessor will arrive at the pre-agreed date and time to inspect your installation, they will bring with them everything that they require but if you could have the following to hand it would assist us:

  • Your contract with the MCS Contractor
  • Any performance predictions that they gave you
  • Any handover pack / documentation that they gave you once the job was complete.

Don’t worry if you can’t find the above as it will not stop the inspection going ahead but if you can it would help us to carry out the site inspection.

Yes you will need to be home, and we would never undertake an inspection without you being there.

We will arrange a suitable time for the inspection that works for you so that you won’t be inconvenienced in any way, if the inspector is running late for unforeseen reasons you would be contacted, and the visit rearranged or cancelled.

Each inspection on average is likely to last between 1-2 hours depending on the technology and the complexity of the installation, we will advise you of our expected duration when we book the site visit in.
