This Technical Specification is applicable to sites manufacturing photovoltaic (PV) modules certified to IEC 61215 or IEC 61646 for design qualification and type approval. The design qualification and type approval of PV modules depend on appropriate methods for product and process design, as well as appropriate control of materials and processes used to manufacture the product. This technical specification lays out best practices for product design, manufacturing processes, and selection and control of materials used in the manufacture of PV modules that have met the requirements of IEC 61215, IEC 61646, or IEC 62108. These guidelines also form the basis for factory audit criteria of such sites by various certifying and auditory bodies.
