This paper summarises the results of 4 years of testing to CEC Specification 503 of commercial crystalline silicon photovoltaic (PV) modules. Module failures are described. The criteria used to define a test sequence for extending certification following module design changes are presented. Future developments in the implementation of qualification tests at the European Solar Test Installation (ESTI) laboratory are presented.
