Photovoltaics − Strong arguments for marketing


When using the power of the sun to generate electricity, safety is the top concern.

There are numerous standards that regulate the specifications that must be met by photovoltaic products. The "TÜV NORD type-tested" symbol gives peace of mind, guaranteeing that the requirements of the relevant product standard and the recognised technical regulations are being followed.

TÜV NORD CERT quality symbols are known and recognised in Europe and many other countries around the world as a sign of quality and safety. This symbol indicates that the manufacturer's statements and product requirements have been verified by neutral experts.

The symbol supports the credibility of product information; this gives a marketing advantage when competing with non-certified products. For manufacturers, certification also makes an effective contribution to limiting product liability risks.
