As 2018 comes to an end so does our most recent Task on Solar Standards and Certification. SHC Task 57 built on the work of Task 43 on Solar Rating and Certification Procedures to develop, improve and promote ISO standards on test procedures and requirements for solar thermal products as well as to harmonize at the international level certification schemes.
