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.

  • Photovoltaics International 24th Edition

    Signs earlier in the year of the global industry entering a growth phase have now been confirmed beyond any doubt. Almost all the big-name suppliers have now announced some form of manufacturing capacity expansion, a trend that analysts agree will only gather pace as long as the levels of demand predicted over the next few years turn out to be correct.

  • Manufacturing The Solar Future: The 2014 Production Annual

    Although the past few years have proved extremely testing for PV equipment manufacturers, falling module prices have driven solar end-market demand to previously unseen levels. That demand is now starting to be felt by manufacturers, to the extent that leading companies are starting to talk about serious capacity expansions later this year and into 2015. This means that the next 12 months will be a critical period if companies throughout the supply chain are to take full advantage of the PV industry’s next growth phase.
