PVTIME – On June 29, TÜV-SÜD, the world leading third-party testing and certification organization, awarded LONGi’s Product Center Laboratory compliance with IEC 61215 and IEC 61730 international standards and the laboratory qualification of Customer Testing Facility (hereinafter referred to as “CTF”) in Taizhou, China’s Jiangsu Province.
TÜV-SÜD is an authoritative global standard-setting and testing certification body. The acquisition of CTF laboratory qualification means that LONGi can use its testing resources to carry out the on-site testing of its own products, according to standard requirements under the witness of third-party organizations. This can effectively shorten the certification test cycle and cost of new product and new material projects, enable a quick response to market changes and comprehensively improve certification efficiency and quality of customer service.
“We are very pleased to obtain CTF laboratory qualification from TÜV-SÜD, which not only means that LONGi’s laboratory testing ability and management levels have reached the industry benchmark, but also reflects LONGi’s reliable product quality and strict requirements,” said Ly Jun, Vice President of LONGi Solar. “In the future, LONGi will continue to adhere to the high-reliability technology R&D route, while continuously supplying high-power, high-efficiency modules with lower LCOE to the industry and strictly guaranteeing the quality of its products.”
“The CTF laboratory qualification from TÜV-SÜD will further reinforce the reputation of LONGi and enhance its brand value, laying the foundation for the long-term stable development of the company. We look forward tocontinuing to cooperate with TÜV-SÜD to jointly promote the sustainable development of the PV industry,” he added.
“TÜV-SÜD has cooperated with LONGi for many years, and the acquisition of CTF laboratory qualification has been the second upgrade of the management level and testing ability of LONGi’s laboratory. It is also a further manifestation of the laboratory’s compliance with IECEE/CB rules. The CB test report and certification of photovoltaic products are the basic technical quality requirements for products sold all over the world. In the past, almost all CB test reports were obtained from third-party testing agencies, but the acquisition by LONGi of CTF laboratory qualification will be a new beginning,” said Xu Hailiang, Vice President of TÜV-SÜD Smart Energy and General Manager of New Energy Vehicle Testing. “We look forward to continuing to cooperate with LONGi and to give full play to both sides’ technological and brand advantages in the field of the PV industry.”
