What is IECRE

The IEC System for Certification to Standards Relating to Equipment for Use in Renewable Energy Applications (IECRE) aims to facilitate international trade in equipment and services for use in the renewable energy sectors while maintaining the required level of safety and performance.

In order to achieve this goal, it:

  • operates a single, global certification system
  • aims for acceptance by national/local authorities or other bodies requiring and benefiting from certification
  • makes use of high-quality international standards and allows for continuous improvement

To be effective and avoid duplicated efforts of what information must be given, when and to whom, IECRE includes a mechanism to resolve disagreements between stakeholders in terms of the content and its correct application.

 IECRE offers a harmonized application around the globe, which ensures a uniform:

implementation and clear understanding of all suppliers
