Quality Assurance Testing

The work on quality assurance in testing was the focus of one of the work areas.

Strong contributions from QAiST partners led to the consolidation and enlargement of the Solar Keymark Network. A very relevant outcome of QAiST was the establishment and evaluation of the inter-laboratory comparison for collectors and systems (round-robin).



Target group(s)

Improving the European Solar Keymark certification scheme

Working Rules for the SK Network

Finalised within the QAiST project, these working rules establish the procedures within the Solar Keymark Network, for its decision making processes, for its management and funding.
