Revised (if Applicable):

Name of Task Force (TF): Japan PV Materials Task Force

Global Technical Committee: Photovoltaic (PV) - Materials
Originating Technical Committee Region: Japan

1. Charter: (State the objective of the proposed TF.)

1. Identify standardization needs and priorities for specifications, guidelines and procedures related to Materials used for manufacturing PV cells/modules and systems.

Examples of such material include, but are not limited to: substrates, TCO films, optical enhancement films, conductive interconnect, insulator materials, absorber films, PVB, EVA, backsheet, sputtering targets, starting material e.g. UMG Si, Poly-si, etc.

2. Participate and support the PV Standards Roadmap discussion.

2. Scope: (Define the specific activities that the TF will conduct.)

1.Survey PV producers, material suppliers, other SDOs (e,g, ASTM, etc.) consortia (e.g. NREL, NIST, etc.) and DOE interests to validate and prioritize the prospective materials list.

2.Develop a list of key players to support the TF efforts.

3.Find leaders for selected TF activities.

4.Generate a document development plan

3. Formal linkages with TFs in other Regions/Locales: (Show each associated TF and its parent global technical committee; indicate nature of relationship – global TF, observer TF, etc.)
Europe – tbd
NA – PV Materials Task Force
