TÜV Rheinland can now provide the North American ANSI/UL1703 solar safety mark

TÜV Rheinland has been given the go-ahead from the U.S. Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) to provide certification for ANSI/UL1703, which is the required North American solar safety mark. The ANSI/UL 1703 certification, which is the latest accreditation in TÜV Rheinland’s portfolio of testing and photovoltaic certifications, is currently one of the pivotal regulatory requirements to launch photovoltaic products in the U.S. marketplace.

“We are very pleased by the accreditation of our North American certification body from OSHA. The elevation of status as a Nationally Recognized Test Laboratory (NRTL) for TÜV Rheinland PTL will give TÜV Rheinland Group another of the key pieces to service our clients globally,” said Richard Bozicevich, North American business field manager for solar services “With this accreditation we can leverage the expertise and geographic reach of the TÜV Rheinland network to better service clients across the globe.”

TÜV Rheinland operates test laboratories for solar modules and systems in six locations worldwide, which together employ approximately 200 experts specializing in solar technologies.
