Should the US vote to approve the list of IEC standards operated by the IECRE for the PV sector (as recorded at the Budapest meeting)?
WG 401 submitted the list of applicable standards (on page 3), as per Decision 04/2017 taken at the sixth PV-OMC meeting in Budapest on 2017-06-21 & 22:
The PV-OMC assigned WG 401 to review the standard series from Annex A of IECRE 04 Edition 1, and to make a proposal to the PV-OMC regarding which Parts, Editions and Amendments are to be included in the PV scope in the IECRE website. Once input is received from WG 401, the Secretariat will revise Annex A of IECRE 04 by making reference to the scope that is identified on the website under: http://www.iecre.org/certification/iecstandards/ and, thereby removing the table of standards from Annex A. The Secretariat will submit both the detailed standards listing and IECRE 04 Edition 2 to the PV-OMC for approval. Subsequently, IECRE 04 Edition 2 will be submitted to the REMC for approval.
Once the list of applicable standards has been approved by the PV membership, the IECRE 04 Edition 2 will be submitted for approval and the list of standards will be added to the webpage of the IEC standards operated by the IECRE.
