Under the commercial MAR program, Microcad receives access to Microsoft’s proprietary tools, enabling the company to install a genuine Microsoft Windows operating system on each of the thousands of refurbished computers it processes for remarketing each month. Microcad also is permitted to affix a Microsoft Windows Certificate of Authenticity (COA) label on each of the PCs it remarkets, providing a sign of due diligence in licensing terms. Microcad has for some time participated in the Community MAR program, which assists eligible organizations in acquiring refurbished hardware, fully licensed and ready for use. 

The MAR program is only for large, established refurbishers: guidelines require significant volumes of equipment being processed, adequate systems for data wiping and reporting, technical expertise for pre-installing Microsoft Windows operating systems in large volume, appropriate security measures to ensure safe handling and storage of high value assets and software licenses, and conformance with all applicable regulations.
