Andreas Faißt, TÜV SÜD Product Service GmbH: "Our clients benefit from our global presence and long-standing experience, as we provide testing and certification services for all major PV markets of the world and our tests are also recognized in closed markets such as China and Japan."
TÜV SÜD has based its BIPV certification on its multi-disciplinary expertise with PV and construction engineering. BIPV certification enables manufacturers and importers to demonstrate that their PV modules and installation systems and methods are safe and comply with the building codes. Certification assesses a host of criteria, including mechanical strength and stability as well as safety in standard operation and in the case of fire. On 14 June 2012 from 14.35 to 15.05 Andreas Faißt will give a talk informing Intersolar visitors about "Certification of building integrated PV products (BIPV)".
At TÜV SÜD's trade fair stand, visitors can inform themselves about the entire service portfolio in the field of PV.
