Certification mark "SOLAR KEYMARK"

Products certification, CE » Voluntary certification

SOLAR KEYMARK is a certification system designed to acknowledge quality, efficiency, and durability of solar collectors for water heating (see EN 12975-1). This mark carries credible information for all parties (e.g. developers, consultants in energy savings, investors, property owners and users) that come into contact with solar collectors that the certified product is safe, has a long-term quality and guaranteed efficiency.
Most of solar collectors placed on the EU market are KEYMARKed.
SOLAR KEYMARK can also be used for collector systems and water storage tanks according to EN 12976 and 12977-3 – but ITC has is not empowered for these certifications.

The owner of the SOLAR KEYMARK certification system is CEN (Comité Européen de Normalisation). The certification system is administered by DIN CERTCO and SOLAR KEYMARK NETWORK (SKN). SKN associates all certification, testing and inspection bodies empowered for the SOLAR KEYMARK, and further representatives of industry, universities, research, national authorities and associations related to solar energy.
SKN constantly works on improving of the certification system – both in plenary sessions, which are held twice a year, and through the work of numerous committees and working groups. It also responds to the constant evolution of technology (recently, for example, the integration of the hybrid collectors, i.e. thermal collectors associated with photovoltaic panels). SKN also makes steps in the globalization of the mark, i.e. its extension beyond the EU.
More information about the certification mark , SKN, database of certified products, and empowered bodies is to be found at ESTIF (European Solar Thermal Industry Federation) website.
