If the product is manufactured entirely by another company, ICC-SRCC will need to inspect that supplier’s manufacturing facility.
If components are manufactured by another company and then shipped to the listee’s facility for assembly into a finished product, ICC-SRCC will only inspect the listee’s facility. Incoming goods procedures are then used to inspect the externally manufactured component.
If the product is comprised entirely of off-the-shelf components that are assembled in the field, ICC-SRCC will require an inspection of the Quality Management Systems – even though no manufacturing takes place at the listee’s facility. This can occur for certain types of OG-300 systems and some OG-100 collectors (e.g., PV water heating, solar air heating collectors).
