MCS and micro hydro

The recently released proposals for MCS accreditation of installers for small hydro is inappropriate and unworkable.

Proposed accreditaion standard is objected to by working hydro memebers of the Hydro Working Group – so much for an "industry led" process. How can an Installer Standard be issued with so much industry led objection to it?

In partcular the requirements in Appendix A are virtually impossible to fullfill.

I have 15 years experience as an engineer working in small hydro , and I could not fulfill the requirments of Appendix A.  They are impractical, unnecesary and expensive.

Why is this idea important?
