Formation of SEMI PV Standards Committee a Significant Milestone for the China PV Industry

The SEMI International Standards Committee, at its recent meeting during PV Japan 2011, approved the formation of a new China PV Standards Committee, which joins committees previously established in Europe, Japan, North America, and Taiwan. The proposal to form the new committee was supported by major players throughout the supply chain, including Astroenergy, GCL, LDK, Suntech, Tianwi, TianWei, Trina, and Yingli. The committee will be chaired by Dr. Guangchun Zhang, Senior Vice President of Suntech, and Ms. Jun Liu, Deputy Director of the China Electronics Standardization institute. As with all SEMI Standards ballots, all ballots will be distributed to the entire global membership of the PV Committee, ensuring that international consensus is reached before any standards are approved for publication.

As Dr. Zhang states, "SEMI has a strong reputation in China for successful standardization, which is why the China PV industry has selected the global SEMI Standards platform to develop consensus on materials, equipment, and other manufacturing areas where standards are needed to improve efficiency and reduce cost. Formation of a SEMI PV Standards Committee is a significant milestone for the China PV industry, and the committee is eager to develop many high-quality SEMI PV standards for the global PV industry."
