Intertek launches PV module testing center in Shanghai

BEIJING, Dec 11, 2008 (Xinhua via COMTEX) --British product quality and safety solution provider Intertek Group Plc. (ITRK.LSE) recently launched a full-service testing center of solar photovoltaic modules in Shanghai in a bid to provide localized services.

As the first one of this kind in the Chinese mainland, this testing center will help local solar product makers gain certifications on global markets and slash the time of export cycle with less payout in this regard.

Greegg Tiemann, executive vice president of Intertek, said that Chinese solar PV producers are enabled to obtain access to world market more quickly since the testing center is situated near major solar product manufacturers in Southeast China's Zhejiang Province.

Now, Intertek could release ETL mark and CE mark for North American market and European market, respectively, in addition to Intertek PV mark.

Meanwhile, Intertek expects to get allowed to issue CB certificate and PV Cap certificate in the first half of 2009, with efforts under way to participate in IECEE CB scheme with 43 member countries.
