JA Solar has received certification from TÜV Rheinland which gives assurances of the quality of the company’s module design, production and product warranty for sale in the Japanese market.
The tier one manufacturer announced that it has received the JISQ 8901 certificate from the PV certification body. The certification system is aimed at encouraging wider adoption of solar photovoltaics in Japan’s power market by providing a standardised level of quality control.
JA Solar’s modules have already received accreditation for the Japan Photovoltaic Energy Association (JPEA)’s JPEC test which confirms that modules meet local grid compatibility standards and national safety regulations. Additionally, the company's modules have passed the Japan Electrical Safety & Environmental Technology Laboratories (JET) test which covers design, construction, reliability and performance.
“This certification gives our Japanese customers further assurance that JA Solar modules will deliver reliable performance and ensure the return on their investment,” said JA Solar’s chief operating officer, Yong Liu.
