Accreditations and conformity assessment bodies

The “Renewable Energy” department organises the accreditation of testing laboratories in accordance with DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025, certification bodies in accordance with DIN EN ISO/IEC 17065 and inspection bodies in accordance with DIN EN ISO/IEC 17020 in all areas of renewable energies. A prerequisite for this is that they are seeking accreditation and are suitable for conformity assessment as a consequence of the requirements of the law on the development of renewable energy (German Renewable Energy Sources Act – EEG 2017) and other national or international requirements. At present, these areas are mainly wind energy and photovoltaics, but also solar thermal energy, hydroelectric energy, ocean energy, biogas and geothermal energy. They are the object of conformity assessment by means of:

  • Type certification of plants for regenerative energy generation
  • Testing and certification of electrical properties of generating units and plants
  • Inspection of sites with regard to wind potential, energy yield, noise and shadow immission, turbulence intensity
  • Inspection of new or operating installations
  • Certification of the identification of offshore installations

Benefits of accreditation

With its accreditation, DAkkS confirms fulfilment of the normative requirements with regard to conformity assessment activities to the conformity assessment bodies, and thus their technical competence.
