Certification according to International Standards

We provide testing advice, infrastructure, training and network for setting up profitable PV test and certification labs

Local certification and testing labs are established around the world



As solar industry is continuously expanding and PV module prices are dropping, quality checking becomes extremely important. Governments worldwide set up local qualification legislations, thus there is a rising demand for local testing and certification services of PV modules. In many countries, there is limited local test and certification laboratories which leads to slow response times and high prices for testing services. It is observed that new testing labs are being set up around the world from existing and new solar players.
