Our certification services for photovoltaics power plant O&M contractors | TÜV Rheinland

We provide O&M contractors with comprehensive certification services in 7 industry indexes, covering 30 main criteria and over 100 sub-criteria according to global standards. Certificates are valid for 3 years.

After receiving your application package consisting of a general form, your ISO 9001 certificate and business license, as well as listings of your O&M service(s) and information about at least 2 PV power plants currently under your service, our specialists will create a tailored audit plan and issue you a formal quote.

Documentation will be reviewed followed by an on-site O&M audit. Results of that audit are then evaluated and, if needed, corrective actions are determined. A re-audit is conducted to verify that corrections have been made. Our experts will generate complete and precise reporting for your certification. After you are certified, annual audits are required to maintain your certification status.
