LDK Solar Co., Ltd., a vertically integrated manufacturer of photovoltaic (PV) products, today announced that its PV Module Lab located in Nanchang City, Jiangxi Province, China, has officially taken part in Intertek Group's Satellite Program.
This data acceptance program can help manufacturers reduce compliance costs and decrease time to market for new products. By joining the Satellite Program, LDK Solar's Test Lab becomes officially recognised by Intertek as a qualified and authorised Satellite laboratory.
Intertek developed its Satellite Program in response to the ever increasing market requirements for product certification. Conducting tests in customers' own labs, on their own schedule, customers obtain Intertek's certifications for their products. Under the Satellite Program, customers can choose the level of service that's right for their compliance and sales goals. When the testing results meet all certification requirements, Intertek issues the requested certificate, such as ETL Listed based on Underwriters Laboratories (UL) 1703 standards.
