When a PV module is certified and one of its component or its production site is modified, extending the certification of this PV module is necessary and mandatory.
In case of a modification, it is no longer necessary to carry out the entire original test sequence used for certification. Indeed, the IEC TS 62915 standard specifies the tests to be redone depending on the type of modification. The number of tests varies from a few to a full test sequence.
In case of a change of the product composition, change of an equipment of the manufacturing facilities or the production plant location, do not hesitate to call on our team to find the best certification extension strategy. Indeed, having a certification strategy makes it possible to optimise the certification extensions of a product range and, therefore, to reduce costs of the certification process.
