The IEC International Standards and CA (Conformity Assessment) activities facilitate world trade by removing technical barriers between countries and/or regions. Within the area of PV the IEC Technical Committee 82 (TC 82) has developed 113 documents (up to September 2018). Within TC 82 Working Group 2 develops standards for modules (non-concentrating). The paper will give an overview of the current activities for WG2, briefly describing the 44 published documents, the 21 ongoing revisions and 17 new projects. More detail for some projects, such as the revision of the 61215 standard series will be presented.
