The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) has issued a notification extending the Quality Control Order (QCO), 2017 for SPV inverters. This notification was issued on 27th July, 2023.
The ministry has provided this extension on account of the limited availability of test facilities and in order to provide additional time for compliance with the QCO. Thus the implementation of Quality Control Order, 2017 for SPV inverters (items 4-5) stands extended from 30th June, 2023 to 31st December, 2023 or till further orders, based on self- certification.
It may be recalled that the government had previously extended the implementation of the said QCO from 30th June, 2022 till 31st December, 2022. Subsequently, the implementation of this order was further extended from 31st December, 2022 to 30th June, 2023.
This timeline now stands further extended till 31st December, 2023.
