Europe-based REC Group’s ‘72-cell product with multi award-winning TwinPeak Technology’ has received certification from the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS).

The company said in a statement that, this new accreditation allows the REC TwinPeak 2S 72 Series – the world’s most powerful 72-cell multicrystalline solar panel – to be offered to the Indian market.

To ensure the quality and standardization of solar panels, earlier this year, the Indian government announced some key policy changes, with BIS the designated agency for implementing these new requirements.

The certification by BIS is now a mandatory requirement for all solar panels imported to or manufactured in India.

By achieving this certification, the REC TwinPeak 2S 72 Series is now one of only a few panels to have met the BIS standards, and REC is the only European brand with a BIS-certified product in its portfolio.

“With BIS certification now being a mandatory requirement, we at REC Group are delighted that the Indian government is finally placing an emphasis on quality and standardization through this certification,” said Rohit Kumar, Head of REC Group for the Indian Subcontinent.

He further added that, “With the proper implementation of this policy, Indian customers shall benefit the most, as it will help to ensure that only products that meet high quality standards are used. In terms of product quality, REC panels lead the market.”
