Certification Information

The Midwestern Regional Climate Center (MRCC) serves as a regional data archiving facility in cooperation with the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) and other federal, state and local authorities. As such, MRCC can certify copies of climate records archived at the MRCC. As an archiving facility, the only fact the MRCC can attest to is that exact duplicates of climatic records on file at this center have been provided to those that requested such data. This is accomplished by attaching a cover letter to the climate data signed by a climatologist stating the authenticity of the data provided. MRCC certification is similar to the "General Certification" provided by NCDC. MRCC is not a federal agency under the U.S. Department of Commerce and therefore cannot certify documents using the U.S. Department of Commerce Certification (DOC Certification) as provided by NCDC. Usually, MRCC certification is adequate to submit climate data records as evidence. However, customers are urged to order DOC Certified records directly from NCDC if local law requires it.
