The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) is inviting comment from the stakeholders on implementing the quality control order titled ‘Solar Photovoltaics (PV) Systems, Devices, and Components Goods Order 2017’ under Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) Act.
The quality control order includes solar modules, inverters, and battery storage with standards adopted from the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards for these products.
Last year in June BIS issued revised Indian Standards for solar modules and inverter and suggest MNRE to hold stakeholder consultation before implementation on June 11 , 2020. However, timeline for implementation was extended by BIS looking in COVID-19 lockdown.
The ministry has invited comments and suggestions from all the stakeholders on the recommendations of the experts’ committee by September 07, 2020.
