1 Bigger market Increased sales Lower prices Solar Keymark - Kicking off the good circle Jan Erik Nielsen, Solar Energy Centre, Technological Institute, DK EU quality label for solar thermal products

2 Solar Keymark - The good circle Bigger Market Better Products Enhanced User Confidence Increased sales More Rational Production Lower prices Jan Erik Nielsen, Solar Energy Centre, Technological Institute, DK

3 Solar Keymark - Whats a Keymark? Certifying conformity means declaring that the product fulfil the requirements in - and is tested according to - the relevant ENs Jan Erik Nielsen, Solar Energy Centre, Technological Institute, DK Do not mix with the CE-Mark: A CE-Mark declares conformity with requirements of EU directives - it is obligatory if the directive covers the product A Keymark certifies conformity with European Standards - it is voluntary I declare this product to fulfil the requirements in the European Standards

4 CEN Certification - Solar Keymark Jan Erik Nielsen, Solar Energy Centre, Technological Institute, DK Solar Keymark EN Solar Collectors Requirements EN Solar Collectors Test Methods EN Factory Made Systems Test Methods EN Factory Made Systems Requirements

5 Solar Keymark - National marks Jan Erik Nielsen, Solar Energy Centre, Technological Institute, DK The Keymark is to be used in conjunction with the marks of existing national certification systems...
