JinkoSolar’s Shangrao, China, production facility has received International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) TS 62941, which certifies the quality of photovoltaic module manufacturers’ management systems.
The IEC TS 62941 specification, launched in early 2016, is administered by the IEC. The technical certification is based on ISO9001 or equivalent quality management systems but adds on a few additional requirements, says JinkoSolar.
For example, IEC TS 62941 creates higher industry standards for PV module product design, development, product certification, process control, key raw material control, procurement, product testing/monitoring, documents and other aspects.
TUV NORD, which assessed JinkoSolar as a third party, specifically highlighted the system planning and organization of JinkoSolar’s Shangrao facility. JinkoSolar has over 15,000 employees across its six production facilities globally.
