Assembly kits for assembly by users following the manufacturer′s instructions. Within the scope of the certification, TÜV SÜD carried out comprehensive product tests.
The system was tested and certified as a photovoltaic power generating unit (excluding thermal applications). Depending on the application in question, the system may comprise various components, such as batteries etc.
The individual photovoltaic modules were tested and certified.
Balance of system (BOS) covers all components of a photovoltaic system with the exception of photovoltaic modules, including cabling, switches, an assembly system, one or more solar inverters, batteries and charger.
The systems certified by TÜV SÜD Product Service were assessed for their system design and their technical documentation, including safety instructions.
The voluntary certification mark with the statement “Safety tested” is issued for products, indicating that the product was tested and certified by the independent third-party organisation of TÜV SÜD Product Service for conformity with the essential technical safety requirements.
Periodic surveillance and/or monitoring of the manufacture of a product constitutes the basic premise for certification that includes the award of a certification mark. Certification always requires product testing and regular factory inspections.
As a third-party expert organisation, TÜV SÜD Product Service verifies that the manufacturer is able to maintain consistent quality in line with the requirements throughout high-volume production and has established the necessary quality system, including incoming goods inspections, lists of materials and final product testing.
In addition, calibration of the necessary measuring and monitoring equipment must be ensured. Surveillance and/or monitoring covers the testing of safety-critical components and other materials used. If unauthorised changes are made to the product, the certificate will become invalid and the TÜV SÜD certification mark may no longer be used.
