Altener Project: Solar Keymark - Work Package 1 "Network of Test Institutes"
Task leader: Jan Erik Nielsen, DTI, Denmark

The main tasks of WP1 are within the network of test institutes to exchange experience while implementing the new European standards, and to give recommendations to improve the standards. The participating test labs has committed them to mutual acceptance of each other accredited test results. The work is organised in 4 subtasks:

Status: Generally work is proceeding very well in all the subtasks - except WP1.C. It turned out that a Keymark can not be based on ENV's, and as the standards for Custom Built Systems has the ENV status, test labs has been given low priority to accreditation for the test methods given here. Specific status for each subtask is given in the specific links above.
