In July 2013, the State Council issued the “Several Opinions of the State Council on Promoting the Healthy Development of the Photovoltaic Industry” (Guo Fa [2013] No. 24), supporting the development of a distributed photovoltaic power generation market, orderly promoting the construction of photovoltaic power plants, and requiring the strengthening of silicon materials and Construction of testing and certification platforms for silicon wafers, photovoltaic cells and components, inverters and control equipment, sound PV product testing and certification systems, and timely release of standards-compliant PV product catalogs. Implementation of key product testing and certification systems for photovoltaic cell components, inverters, control equipment, etc., products that have not passed the testing and certification are not allowed to enter the market.
In August 2013, the National Energy Administration issued the Notice of the National Energy Administration on the Interim Measures for the Administration of Projects for Printing and Powering Photovoltaic Power Plants (Guo Neng Xinneng [2013] No. 329), requiring photovoltaic power plant projects to comply with the relevant national photovoltaic power plants connected to the power grid. Technical standards, network-related equipment must pass the test and certification.
In November 2013, the National Energy Administration issued the “Notice of the National Energy Administration on Printing and Distributing the Interim Measures for the Management of Distributed Photovoltaic Power Generation Projects” (Guoneng Xinneng [2013] No. 433), which requires photovoltaic modules used in distributed photovoltaic power generation projects. Equipment such as inverters shall pass the testing and certification of certification and accreditation bodies that meet the requirements of the State, and comply with the technical requirements for access to the grid.
In February 2014, the National Certification and Accreditation Administration and the National Energy Administration jointly issued the “Implementation Opinions of the National Energy Administration of the State Certification and Accreditation Administration on Strengthening the Testing and Certification of Photovoltaic Products” (National Certification Alliance [2014] No. 10), requesting the strengthening of photovoltaic product testing. Certification work, improve the quality of photovoltaic products, strictly implement the testing and certification system and market access, the current product range of photovoltaic product testing and certification, including photovoltaic modules, inverters, control equipment, sinking equipment, energy storage equipment and independent photovoltaic systems In addition, according to market demand and technological progress, the scope of testing and certification products will be expanded in a timely manner. Photovoltaic power generation projects connected to the public grid and non-grid independent photovoltaic power generation projects that enjoy subsidies from all levels of government shall use photovoltaic products certified by the certification body approved by the CNCA (referred to as certified products). When the construction unit conducts equipment procurement bidding, it shall clearly require the use of certified products.
In order to promote the smooth implementation of China's PV product access system, China Quality Certification Center (CQC) will provide services to solar photovoltaic products manufacturers. The solar photovoltaic product certification service provided by CQC has been officially approved by the China Certification and Accreditation Administration Committee (CNCA), which complies with the regulations of the competent energy authorities at all levels in China, and has photovoltaic modules, inverters, control equipment, The ability to implement certification for major solar photovoltaic power generation products such as converging equipment, energy storage equipment independent photovoltaic systems, photovoltaic junction boxes, photovoltaic connectors, solar simulators, photovoltaic tracking systems, and photovoltaic module packaging materials.
As a national-level certification body established by law and recognized by all walks of life, CQC is willing to work together with colleagues from all walks of life to jointly promote the healthy development of China's photovoltaic industry and continue to make its own contribution to building a resource-saving and environment-friendly Chinese society.
