Solar Association Approved Quality Standards

As members of the Solar Association manufacturers and importers of overseas manufactured equipment are required to periodically demonstrate that the equipment meets the manufacturing and operating standards set by the Association from time to time, and that the equipment supplied will be consistently manufactured and supplied to meet the required equipment standards.

The Solar Association has developed a "Solar Water Heating and Manufacturing and Installation Code of Practice for New Zealand". The currently approved code is available here (Please note name change from SIA).

The product manufacturing standard is AS/NZS2712:2007.

The Solar Association administers the Code on behalf of the industry. Any comments or suggestions for improving the Code are welcomed and should be forwarded to the Solar Association Executive Officer.
