On May 9, 2019, the 10th meeting of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) Renewable Energy Equipment Certification Recognition System Wind Subcommittee (IECRE WE-OMC) was held in Pretoria, South Africa. On the meeting, Mr. Pan Weiping, Deputy General Manager of R&D SBU of Goldwind and the IECRE WE-OMC Vice-Chair candidate nominated by the Certification and Accreditation Administration of the People’s Republic of China (CNCA), was successfully elected with a three-year term (January 1, 2020 to December 31, 2022). This is also the second Chinese expert to hold this important position in IECRE, following the re-election of Mr. Qin Haiyan, Director of China General Certification.
This election is an important recognition of the achievements made by Goldwind in wind power industry over the past 20 years, and also enhances China's influence and voice in the field of IEC conformity assessment, marking China's progress and achievements in the field of mutual acceptance of international standards on renewable energy, mainly wind and solar energy.
Goldwind has been actively involved in the formulation and revision of international and national standards on wind power technology, it aims to be a quality benchmark in the industry. By the end of 2018, Goldwind had participated in the formulation and revision of 11 IEC standards, of which 2 were led by Goldwind. It had participated in 11 IEA tasks, and been involved in the formulation and revision of 178 standards in China (of which 83 were national standards, 76 were industry standards, and 19 were local and association standards).
Established in 2014, IECRE is the fourth Conformity Assessment System in the IEC. Through the establishment and operation of a unified certification system based on relevant international standards, it aims for universal acceptance of certification results by local/national authorities or other bodies, thus facilitating international trade in equipment for renewable energy.
China is a founding member of IECRE, its member body – CNCA operates in IECRE wind energy and Solar PV energy sectors. Chinese experts who hold important management positons in the system will help make China’s voice heard in the formulation of international conformity assessment rules for renewable energy equipment, promote China's interaction with the international community in this field, and create favorable conditions for the international development of China's renewable energy industry and related conformity assessment industry.
