BS EN 50380:2017

Marking and documentation requirements for Photovoltaic Modules

Status : Current   Published : September 2017



This European Standard describes marking, including nameplate and documentation requirements for non-concentrating photovoltaic modules. This European Standard provides mandatory information that needs to be included in the product documentation or affixed to the product to ensure safe and proper use. Best practices are included in this document giving guidance on additional information, for example module’s performance at different irradiance levels. Markings, including nameplates, are permanently affixed information on the PV modules, which indelibly states the rating and other information as required by the relevant standard for safe use and maintenance. While, documentation information is a technical description separate from the photovoltaic module. This European Standard is based on IEC and EN standards defining marking, nameplate and documentation requirements for PV modules.
