The testing standard for thermal solar collectors with liquid medium, EN 12975-2, has been was replaced with the new standard EN ISO 9806. The new standard reflects the latest development in production and testing of collectors.
On 30 Sept 2013 ITC signed an agreement with COSMT (as a national representative of CEN) and got hereby a SOLAR KEYMARK Certification Body. SOLAR KEAMARK is a voluntary quality mark for solar thermal collectors.
Certified products have to be regularly tested and the manufacturer’s factory production control system is also inspected. The certificate thus gives a high degree of guarantee of the product’s parameters and the quality of manufacture. ITC is SOLAR KEYMARK Certification Body No 032 and the first one in Czechia.
The list of SVHC substances (Substances of Very High Concern) published in accordance with Article 59(10) of the REACH Regulation (on the Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of CHemicals) was amended in June 2013. The group substance “4-nonylphenol, branched and linear, ethoxylated” belongs to the new candidate substances.
With respect to the clients requests the new method was developed in ITC laboratories - Mineral oils MOSH and MOAH determination in packaging. Aromatic mineral oils (MOAH) are considered by EFSA as potentially carcinogenic and are given high attention now. Limit values for migration were published on a national basis by German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR).
