Originating Technical Committee Region: China


1. Charter:

To develop technical standard specifications, test methods, and guidelines related to PV modules (except thin-film modules), such as mono-crystalline silicon, multi-crystalline silicon, p-type, n-type, back contact, bifacial solar module and so on.
