Title Solar wafers - Data sheet and product information for crystalline silicon wafers for solar cell manufacturing
Project Number 16148
Abstract/Scope This document describes data sheet and product information for crystalline silicon (Si) – solar wafers and measurement methods for wafer properties. The document intends to provide the minimum information required for an optimal use of crystalline silicon wafers in solar cell manufacturing. Clauses 5 to 7 describe the data sheet information with technical specifications of the silicon solar wafer with all essential characteristics. The product information concerns packaging, labelling and storage, and implies the commitment to inform about major changes of the product and in the manufacturing process. This data is needed for the processing of silicon solar wafers to solar cells. Clauses 8 to 16 describe measurement methods for the characteristic properties specified in the data sheet.

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn
