When manufacturers apply for a new ICC-SRCC certification, they provide basic information needed to get the process started. But once we get underway, we will need more detailed information about your product to confirm that it complies with standards and to generate performance ratings (if applicable). The information needed varies depending on the certification being […]
No. ENERGY STAR certification under the Residential Water Heater Program is only available for complete solar water heating systems. The entire system must be certified under the OG-300 program to qualify for ENERGY STAR. And since OG-300 systems must make use of a solar thermal collector certified as a component to OG-100, all ENERGY STAR […]
No. In the U.S., photovoltaic (PV) modules are must be listed to UL 1703 or UL 61730 to satisfy the requirements of the National Electrical Code (NFPA 70) and the International Building Code (IBC). SRCC does not currently list PV modules to these standards. Instead, SRCC provides certifications and listings for solar thermal collectors and […]
Solar pool heating collectors have a number of unique characteristics that are better described on a dedicated certificate. Usually solar pool heaters make use of unglazed, polymeric collectors. Unlike glazed collectors (those with transparent covers over the solar absorbers), unglazed collectors are much more sensitive to wind and longwave (infrared) radiation. And pool applications differ […]
When a manufacturer gets a product tested by a testing laboratory, it’s a one-time activity. The test lab will test samples of the product and check that they conform to the requirements of a standard or other specification. When it is completed, the manufacturer receives a test report that indicates whether the product complied with […]

SRCC’s OG certification programs assess compliance with one of the ICC/SRCC ANSI standards. They include: OG-100 for solar thermal collectors (ICC 901/SRCC 100 standard) OG-300 for solar water heating systems (ICC 900/SRCC 300 standard) OG-400 for solar pool heating systems (ICC 902/SRCC 400 standard) Additionally, the OG-100 and OG-300 certifications include standardized SRCC performance ratings. […]
Yes, but SRCC must be notified in advance. SRCC will evaluate the change to the collector to determine continued compliance and whether retesting will be required before revising the certification. Editorial or technical modification fees may be assessed.
Yes, they must be registered with SRCC so you can login and authorize a Private Label to that company.
Yes, once you have OG-100 certification, you may login to your account and apply for a Private Label.
