After 30th November, 2011, each TV imported into Europe needs to have a label attached which indicates the Energy Ef?ciency of the product. This requirement is based on European Energy Labeling Directive 1062/2010. The label itself is already well known to European consumers, as similar labelling is employed on ordinary household items such as refrigerators. Each label displays seven energy levels (A to G), which are indicated by different colours and range from red for “not very energy ef?cient” (category G) to green (category A) for “very energy ef?cient”. The levels are determined on the basis of the Energy Ef?ciency Index (EEI), which classi?es power intake based on a reference value, Pref, and is calculated

as EEI = P/Pref. The reference value Pref depends on the screen area A. It consists of a base value P basic = 20W and a is calculated as Pref = P basic +A x 4.322W/m?. The inclusion of such accessories as HDD increases the base value of P basic, whereas the omission of a tuner reduces it. Similar to USEPA ENERGY STAR?, such features as automatic brightness control result in a superior classi?cation. Next to the aforementioned category designation, the new label must also display the screen diagonal, power usage, average annual energy usage (based on four hours of daily use), standby power as well as the number of the regulation.

In comparison with other household items, it is rather dif?cult for the current generation of televisions to achieve an A rating. This is intentional on the part of the Directive’s creators, who wish to allow space for improvements. Further improvements are anticipated, with the gradual removal of the worst energy ef?ciency classes and the introduction of such ratings as A+, A++ and A+++, as the energy ef?ciency of TVs and related equipment improves. The labelling scheme does not in itself ban any products from European markets, but is intended to achieve greater market transparency and thus boost the self-regulation of the market.

The CGC received approval from China’s Certi?cation and Accreditation Administration (CNCA) in 2003, allowing the professional organisation to provide nation-wide technical services dedicated to the certi?cation and testing of renewable energy products. The CGC launched the Golden Sun Certi?cation scheme for solar products in China in 2007, and such certi?cation is now accepted by many regional solar projects, including the National Golden Sun Model Engineering Project and the Tibet Village Electricity Pioneering Project, as well as international projects such as the World Banksupported International Solar Project. Accordingly, it has become one of the most authoritative certi?cation marks for solar products in China. Approximately 80% of solar module manufacturers worldwide have their products tested and certi?ed by T?V Rheinland. The company employs more than 170 PV experts in six laboratories around the world to provide

testing services for solar products and systems. Its recent collaboration with the CGC means that solar module factories in Taiwan can now receive CGC certi?cation in addition to international certi?cation, saving them not only time but also money. During the certi?cation authorisation ceremony, Robert Struwe, Manager of the T?V Rheinland Solar Energy Laboratory in Taiwan, said: “It is a pleasure to be able to collaborate with the CGC, which involves manufacturers in Taiwan in the growth of the PV market in mainland China.” CGC Deputy Director Wan Lin said: “T?V Rheinland has a great reputation and extensive experience in the area of global solar testing and certi?cation. The CGC is the most authoritative organisation for solar product certi?cation in China. Through collaboration between these two parties, we anticipate promoting the development of the global PV industry.”

To provide more convenient and comprehensive services and to cope with the growing need for wirelessproduct testing, T?V Rheinland Taiwan has invested hundreds of millions of NT dollars and recently completed a new EMC & Radio Laboratory, doubling our testing capabilities for electromagnetic compliance and radio testing. The new lab will offer greater convenience desired by electronics and ICT manufacturers applying for multiple national approvals at the same time. According to European Directives, all electrical and electronic products must comply with EMC regulations in order to be marketed in the EU. That is, an electronic product must remain operational within a certain range of electromagnetic interference (EMI), while its electromagnetic emissions must not affect the operation of nearby electronic products. The new EMC & Radio Lab adheres to international testing standards and houses the latest testing equipment. We are able to conduct myriad types of testing for IT products, RF products, medical equipment, AV products, household appliances, luminaries, industrial equipment, Bluetooth products, automotive components, and other products. The new lab ful?lls all requirements in Taiwan as well as US FCC and EN

(European) standards, able to test products with a frequency range up to 40GHz. In addition, equipped with TPC (Transmit Power Control) and DFS (Dynamic Frequency Selection), we are able to test 5GHz equipment. Competition among EMC labs in Taiwan is ?erce. While most other labs are located in suburban areas, T?V Rheinland’s EMC & Radio Lab in Taipei is conveniently situated within the city, meaning numerous transportation options to facilitate optimal communication with clients. Among other bonuses created: the lead time required for certi?cation testing will be shortened by one week, and package pricing will be more favorable. T?V Rheinland continuously seeks to expand our service portfolio. We are a Noti?ed Body recognized by the European Commission, and a quali?ed FCC TCB (USA) and IC FCB (Canada) reviewer, as a result able to assist manufacturers in obtaining necessary approvals for RF products to be exported to these markets. Certi?cation by an independent third party will lend greater credibility to test reports and help manufacturers gain the trust of overseas buyers.

“As a global leader in independent technical testing and certi?cation, T?V Rheinland strives to help clients to gain greater access to global markets by ensuring that their products not only conform to the receiving country or region’s speci?c technical standards, but also bene?t from the recognition associated with our brand”, Mr Hecker said during the ceremony. “This latest one-stop centre empowers our Shanghai team to rapidly provide assistance to manufacturers from neighbouring provinces, notably by helping them to ful?l their clients’ demands for growing product variety, shortened production cycles, cost reductions and supply chain risk management.” In full operation as of April 2011, the T?V Rheinland building houses one of the largest and most modern integrated testing spaces in Asia. It caters to manufacturers from the consumer goods, machinery, and solar industries and houses the latest in chemical analysis, electrical safety, calibration, ?tness-for-use, physical and mechanical testing machinery under one roof. Combined of?ces and laboratories guarantee closer client follow-up and grant immediate access to all applicable

required services for submitted test samples. The overall result is to enhance the customer experience by generating savings in terms of logistics and shortened lead-times. “The establishment of the building obtained great support from the district government and the local China Inspection and Quarantine Bureau”, noted Gerhard Luebken, Vice President of T?V Rheinland Greater China and responsible for T?V Rheinland Shanghai operations. “By conveniently locating our new building near the Hongqiao transportation hub in Shanghai Zhabei District, we aim to not only serve Shanghai-based clients, but also those from the Yangtze River Delta and beyond”, Mr Luebken added. The certi?cation industry is undergoing a trend towards the partial or complete outsourcing of product testing to smaller labs to keep costs low. Going against this prevailing current, T?V Rheinland has opted to instead competitively group tests under one roof to combine standard quality and tailor-made solutions in one location. The question of uniform quality is particularly important for retailers that

deal in large volumes, whereas our tailor-made solutions bene?t Chinese manufacturers, which are gradually shifting towards more sophisticated production models. In today’s fastpaced global marketplace, lead-times, quality, price and risk mitigation determine deals, and ?exibility and recognised competence go a long way. With its formula of investment in its own capacities, T?V Rheinland aims to reinforce both. “For more than 135 years, our company has advocated sustainability by means of ensuring the right balance between man, technology and nature”, Mr Luebken said. “This opening brings us closer to meeting this target, as we have established technology-based operations that employ hundreds of locals and promote services that protect both consumers and the environment.” He concluded: “Our investment in this new compound further aligns our experts and labs to mitigate production and product risks, to test products according to the strictest environmental standards and to formulate ef?ciency improvements, all in order to help our clients to meet market demand sustainably.”

According to Mrs Therhaag, T?V Rheinland’s global PV network and constantly extended testing capacity has allowed it to shorten lead-times and provide strong support to domestic PV manufacturers, thus enabling them to keep pace with the developments in European markets in terms of technical innovation.

T?V Rheinland participated in the 5th SNEC International Photovoltaic Power Generation Exhibition & Conference in February 2011, during which it had the great honour of being named one of the event’s “Top Ten Highlights”. T?V Rheinland’s participation in the Expo ensured that it was a great success. Regarded as one of the most in?uential international events of its kind in Asia, this PV Power Expo was held from 22nd to 24th February at the Shanghai New International Expo Center (SNIEC). Hosted by the Shanghai New Energy Industry Association (SNIEA) and jointly organised by 15 international associations, including the European Photovoltaic Industry Association (EPIA) and the Chinese Renewable Energy Society (CRES), the Expo showcased the latest technologies and services of this booming industry.

Using the professional communication platform afforded by the Expo, T?V Rheinland shared information on the latest PV product quality standards, technical speci?cations, and related services and offered visitors a face-toface opportunity to engage in discussion with T?V Rheinland’s reputed experts from home and abroad. Speaking at the Expo, Mrs Ulrike Therhaag, Director of Solar/Fuelcell Technology at T?V Rheinland Greater China, noted that “at present, 95% of China’s PV products depend on exports”. She continued: “As overseas buyers impose higher quality requirements, Chinese manufacturers will be faced with increasingly stricter international market access hurdles. Thus, price competition will no longer be the major strategy for manufacturers to establish themselves in international markets. In our cooperation with Chinese panel manufacturers in recent years, we’ve been happy to see that more and more manufacturers are strengthening their technology via R&D and thus improving the quality of their products.” “As a trusted partner among buyers”, she said, “we’re dedicated to facilitating good-quality Chinese PV products in accessing global markets. Furthermore, we’re also able to provide the Golden Sun Mark Certi?cation service, which means that for those who want to enter domestic and international markets at the same time, our one-stop services help to save time and effort to the maximum extent possible.”

Beijing, 22nd February 2011—Global third-party testing, inspection and certi?cation leader T?V Rheinland has become the ?rst foreign certi?cation body to be granted three types of accreditation from the China National Accreditation Service for Conformity Assessment (CNAS). This CNAS accreditation provides further recognition of the Quality Management System Certi?cation (QMS), Environmental Management System Certi?cation (EMS) and Occupational Safety and Health Management System (OHSMS) assessments carried out by T?V Rheinland. T?V Rheinland provides authoritative certi?cation and inspection services to companies around the world, granting reliable assurance of product safety and sound quality management systems. In line with China’s ?ourishing export-oriented business and its rising position in international trade, the country’s of?cial accreditation body

has begun conducting competence assessments of the foreign certi?cation bodies that apply for accreditation. These locally accredited bodies can then grant clients one-stop solutions to both domestic and foreign regulations, thereby allowing them to avoid repeat certi?cation applications. “We are extremely proud of this milestone”, states Wong Yushun, T?V Rheinland’s Director for Systems. “With this accreditation, we strengthen our offerings, as we add to our existing QMS, EMS and OHSMS third-party assessments capabilities the authority to grant certi?cates that abide by and are recognised by the CNAS criteria.” Mr Wong continues: “QMS plays a crucial role in the whole operation of a company, as it serves to command and control quality within that company. EMS, in turn, is aimed at controlling

the environmental impacts on human beings and the ecosystem. Lastly, OHSMS refers to systems that ensure the occupational health and safety of employees in the workplace. We at T?V Rheinland are happy to support local companies that are conscious of the difference they can make by taking corrective and preventive actions. In fact, undertaking such an approach can signi?cantly improve a company’s overall offerings to staff, clients and stakeholders all the while becoming more ef?cient.” At the end of 2010, local authorities in China began to implement the reinforced monitoring of foreign certi?cation bodies, including the closer monitoring of licensing and other procedures to correct any discrepancies. Recognition by a national accreditation body such as the CNAS is a crucial indicator of the quality of the certi?er.

T?V Rheinland can assist you in meeting the challenges that arise from the interactions amongst corporate bene?ts, SR and environmental protection. We strive for a better future by ensuring a balance between man, technology and nature. Our group’s success in delivering helpful solutions for quality and safety, market access, and sustainable development has earned us the trust and respect of our customers around the globe.

Shenzhen, 25th February 2011 The European Union Chamber of Commerce (EUCCC) and the EU-China Managers Association (EUCMA) jointly hosted the 2011 Pearl River Delta Forum at the Grand Mercure Oriental Ginza Hotel in Shenzhen in February. This successful event adopted the theme “Being Globally Responsible”. T?V Rheinland, a global inspection and certi?cation leader, was invited to attend the forum during which Andreas Münch, General Manager of Certi?cation and Accreditation of Systems at T?V Rheinland Greater China, elaborated upon the ISO 26000:2010-Guidance on Social Responsibility (SR). Approximately 60 executives and managers from a range of companies attended the forum and displayed a strong desire to learn more about how they can ful?l their corporate social responsibility (CSR) by following the guidance provided by ISO 26000. During the forum, Mr Münch noted that “1st November 2010 marked the of?cial launch of ISO 26000, the SR guidance standard that provides the most authoritative, up-to-date and comprehensive de?nition of what it means for any organisation to be socially responsible”. He continued: “It both adds value to existing work on CSR and extends the understanding and implementation of SR. In the past, there were many different code of conduct and standards, but many with a strong focus on the industrial supply chain and not many covering all aspects of SR. For instance, consumer issues have been neglected so far, but of course consumers are an important stakeholder group whose interests need to be considered when balancing the demands from so many different directions.” Mr Münch concluded: “ISO26000 is planning to change that.

The standard now provides guidelines applicable to any organisation – whether small or large, public or private, in the developed world or in developing countries – allowing them to better plan SR ful?lment.” Brian Ho, Director of CSR Asia’s China of?ces focused on promoting understanding of the CSR concept amongst Chinese ?rms. He encouraged the attendees to view CSR not only as a social bene?t but also as a chance to explore new business opportunities in the new economy. Fu Lei, Nokia’s CSR Director, Greater China, Dou RuiGang, Executive SecretaryGeneral of the Tencent Fund, and Li

Jun, Chairman of the Humanitarian Advisory Council at Operation Blessing China, also attended the forum and shared their knowledge and experience of CSR best practice. By highlighting the example of leading companies and organisations, the forum encouraged small- and medium-sized enterprises to take the leap from good intentions to concrete actions in ful?lling their social responsibilities to achieve a harmonised society.

???????????????????????????????????? ??? ????????????????????????????? ?????????????????????????????????? ????????????????????????????????? T?V? ?????????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????????? ???????????????????? The soaring development of such industries as energy, rail, rail transit, construction, communications, shipping and mobility has resulted in a dramatic rise in export opportunities for the related cable and cord industry. Although the production and sales volume of China-made cables and cords rank at the top globally, numerous manufacturers are facing such tough challenges as a low production concentration, high manufacturing costs and industrial homogenisation competition due to a lack of core development capability. In the recent seminar, experts from T?V Rheinland provided professional solutions that will help these manufacturers to ensure product safety and upgrade their products via technological innovation, thus also helping them to enhance their core competence and stand out from the global competition.

T?V Rheinland hosted a cable and cord seminar at the White Pond Training Centre in Hebei Province on the 26th and 27th of February with the aim of exchanging views with a large number of cable and cord manufacturers and highlighting the technical features of a variety of new and high value-added special cables, as well as the European and domestic requirements covering them. The seminar received strong support from the China National Centre for the Quality Supervision & Testing of Electric Wire & Cable (TICW) and Hebei Zhonglian Plastics Technology Development Co., Ltd. It was attended by more than 190 representatives of over 90 companies, among which cable companies from the north of China accounted for more than 50%, with those from east and central China accounting for the remainder. Joining them were top of?cials from the General Of?ce of the State Council and Xiong County, the chief engineer of the Hebei Academy of Quality and Technical Supervision, Mr Sun Shiming, Chairman of the Hebei Cable Television Association, and Mr Tong Zhiqiang, Chairman of the Beijing Wire and Cable Industry Association. During the two-day seminar, Dr Chen Weikang and Ms Liu Weihai, Director of Commercial Products and General Manager of Power Transmission Devices, respectively, at T?V Rheinland Greater China, familiarised

the attendees with the latest European carbon footprint assessments and the certi?cation status quo for Photovoltaic (PV) cables, electric vehicle cables and locomotive cables. Furthermore, Mr Wu Changshun, Director of TICW, gave a detailed introduction to the latest technological developments of special cables for these emerging industries. The seminar received strong feedback, with attendees noting that they had found it very useful, particularly in the guidance it provided them in terms of technological, R&D and product upgrading. They said they had also appreciated learning more about T?V Rheinland’s certi?cation services in this arena, as well as receiving information on international market access, thus giving them a competitive advantage in business development. Since the successful close of the seminar, T?V Rheinland has continued to draw on its 20+ years of experience in this ?eld to ful?l its commitment to providing a one-stop service for manufacturers of traditional and special cables, including PV, electric vehicle, wind energy, locomotive and elevator cables. We stand by our pledge to fully support domestic cable and cord manufacturers in promoting the competitive advantage of their products and achieving further business growth.

These blankets are a true green product. They are highly dirt-resistant and easy to dry, and are often used in global disaster relief operations. The blankets are made from waste PET bottles, and no new dyes are involved in their manufacture, which substantially reduces the amount of chemicals introduced into the environment, as well as the amount of water employed in the production process. Their green colour not only is testament to their environmental credentials, but also shows off the natural colour of recycled PET bottles. The attainment of recycled materials veri?cation demonstrates that the product has been tested and proven safe and non-toxic to humans.

? ???????????? ? ?????????? ? ???????????? ? ????????????? :1 & ? ?????? To further protect the environment, Da Ai recommends hand-washing the blankets rather than using a washing machine, thereby saving more energy and reducing water consumption. Air- rather than machine-drying can further reduce carbon emissions by up to 90%.

Commenting on the veri?cation, Jason Wu, general manager of T?V Rheinland Systems Greater China Sales and New Business Development, said, “Normally, the recycled PET impurity rate at recycling plants reaches 1520%, but Tzu Chi’s volunteers have helped to reduce this to less than 10% by using a good PET bottle separation and classi?cation procedure. Such superior processing not only facilitates better quality, but also leads to the consumption of less energy.” Combined with the technical capacity of supply-chain vendors, the end result is green blankets of much greater added value. Da Ai Technology has also found that its use of carbon footprint measurement tools has given it a fuller picture of its green blankets. First, compared to the production of brand new materials, the use of recycled materials reduces carbon emissions by 15%. Second, the company’s green blankets are made of 100% recycled PET, with no additional dyeing ingredients, and thus they require no energy use for dyeing and produce no carbon emissions. Yet, they maintain their naturally green colour and boast strong dirt resistance. The use of carbon footprint tools enables a better understanding of the greenhouse gas emissions produced by different activities and measures the impact of these activities on climate change. The use of oil, water and electricity produces greenhouse gases. The more energy and other resources we use, the more serious climate warming becomes. T?V Rheinland has veri?ed that Da Ai has fully implemented carbon footprint reduction technology throughout the

?????????????????? ?????????????????????? Mr.Uwe Haistenbach, General Manager of T?V Rheinland Taiwan, and Mr. James Lee, CEO of Da Ai Technology (from left to right)

entire lifecycle of its green blankets, from the recovery of PET particles to the processing of the yarn that goes into the ?nished blankets. According to Jason Wu, “companies can use recycled materials to meet the requirements set down in international environmental standards, and also take advantage of carbon footprint tools to measure the carbon emissions of green products at different stages of their lifecycle – from raw materials and manufacturing to consumer endproducts”. T?V Rheinland has extensive professional experience in the provision of recycling and carbon management services. For more than 20 years, it has been assisting manufacturers by verifying a wide range of recycled materials, such as waste coffee powder and PP/PE, and has provided carbon footprint veri?cation for textiles, electronic

products and food products, thereby helping manufacturers to improve the ef?ciency and green credentials of their products. Da Ai Technology chose T?V Rheinland as its preferred recycled materials and carbon footprint veri?cation partner because of its ability to implement strict internationally recognised third-party audits. The company’s objective in gaining such veri?cation has been not only to ful?l the international environmental requirements for its products, but also to incorporate international-standard documentation and procedures in the hope of promoting the recycled product concept in international markets and doing its part to cultivate a green ethos.

!!!!!!!!!!?????????????????????? ???????????????????????????? ????????????????!
“Compared to the use of new raw materials, putting recycled materials to use can reduce carbon emissions dramatically and decrease consumption of the Earth’s resources. This product is perfectly placed for the eco-friendly, very low-carbon market niche”.
