    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Pertains to photovoltaic modules used as construction products.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This document applies to photovoltaic modules used as construction products. It focuses on the properties of these photovoltaic modules relevant to essential building requirements as specified in the European Construction Product Regulation CPR 305/2011, and the applicable electro-technical requirements as stated in the Low Voltage Directive 2006/95/EC / or CENELEC standards. This document references international standards, technical reports and guidelines. For some applications in addition national standards (or regulations) for building products may apply in individual countries, which are not explicitly referenced here and for which harmonized European Standards are not yet available. The document is addressed to manufacturers, planners, system designers, installers, testing institutes and building authorities. This document does not apply to concentrating or building-attached photovoltaic modules. 1 This document addresses requirements on the PV modules in the specific ways they are intended to be mounted but not the mounting structure itself, which is within the scope of EN50583‑2 .
