TSMC Solar Enters Production On Receiving UL, IEC And ISO 9001 Certification

TAICHUNG, Taiwan, March 15, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- TSMC Solar Ltd. announced today that it has received both Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and International Electrotechnical Commission's (IEC) certification for a wide range of its TS CIGS series PV modules. Modules with nominal power of up to 130W are now listed on the California Energy Commission's (CEC) list of compliant PV modules.

"UL and IEC product certifications open the majority of the world's solar markets to TSMC Solar products," said Ying-Chen Chao, President of TSMC Solar. "We are also making rapid progress in acquiring the individual market and special purpose certifications required to compete in solar markets worldwide."

TS CIGS series modules have entered production this month, with customer shipments to begin in April. The modules are produced at TSMC Solar's highly automated manufacturing facility in Taichung, Taiwan. Demonstrating its commitment to best practices in quality and manufacturing excellence, TSMC Solar has received ISO 9001 quality management system certification.
