The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy has issued a notification extending the Quality Control Order (QCO), 2017 for SPV inverters. This notification was issued on 24th January, 2023.

It may be recalled that the government had previously extended the implementation of the said QCO from 30th June, 2022 till 31st December, 2022. This now stands further extended till 30th June, 2023.

However in order to avail of this extension, such manufacturers must have valid Importer- Export Code (IEC) certificates corresponding to IS (IS 16221(Part 2):2015/IEC 62109-2:2011 for item No 4 and IS 16169:2014/IEC 62116:2008 for item No. 5.
