The IEC System for Conformity Assessment and Certification in Renewable Energy Applications (IECRE System) was formed in 2014 with an aim to facilitate international trade for use in Renewable Energy Sectors while maintaining the required level of safety. The IEC Technical Committees set standards, and IECRE assesses and certifies that renewable energy equipment is in conformity to these standards.
The mission of the IECRE is to operate a single, global certification system, accepted by local and national authorities or other bodies requiring and benefiting from certification, based on high quality IEC Standards while allowing for continuous improvement.
The IECRE’s goal is to offer a harmonized application for conformity assessment around the globe, and across technologies, which ensures a uniform:
• implementation and mutual recognition between certification bodies and test labs
• implementation and delivery of information by suppliers, sub-suppliers, end users and others providing documentation for certification
• implementation and clear understanding of all suppliers, sub-suppliers, end users and other applicants for the elements and modules as well as reports, statements and certificates of the certification processes
ARESCA offers a platform for information exchange and coordination for United States companies, industries, governments, and other stakeholders as they participate in the development of the IECRE conformity assessment system through the USNC/IECRE.
Effective January 1, 2017, ARESCA will assume the duties of the Secretariat of the USNC/IECRE.
