Topsolar is a subsidiary of the renowned Shanghai Electric Group of companies, excels at producing high power solar cells and PV systems. Its products are widely shipped to and installed in South East Asia, Germany, and Spain, etc.
Topsolar’s hazardous substance process management system (HSPM) is a perfect demonstration of the power and versatility of IECQ QC 080000.
It is a well-known fact that due to technology limitation and lack of replacement, silver or aluminum ink used in solar panel contains lead. Topsolar not only proactively communicates to all of its customers about this limitation and receives their understandings, but also aggressively researches on lead-free replacement with its ink suppliers. In fact, they have established an objective and timeline on eliminating the use of lead-containing ink in its product lines. Additionally, they have established a three-tier mechanism in controlling hazardous substances including tight supplier selection, stringent receiving inspection, and closely monitored cross-contamination production controls.
SGS is pleased to be selected by Topsolar as the certifying body. According to Mr. Zhu Yuanhao, General Manager of Topsolar, “SGS is the market leader in hazardous substance testing and assessment. We have had a satisfied and long-term relationship working with SGS. It is an obvious choice.” In addition to QC 080000, Topsolar is also ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified by SGS.
