Solar Supply Chain Traceability Protocol

The ability to trace the provenance of products and components through the value chain, from input materials to the finished product, is necessary and important for a variety of reasons, including sustainability, environment, health, and safety (EHS), and social responsibility. From upholding corporate social responsibility principles to quality assurance and environmental performance, robust product traceability provides openness and transparency.

Solar Equipment Buyers' Guide for Supply Chain Traceability

The SEIA Traceability Protocol (Protocol) lays out a series of steps that a manufacturer can take to track the origin of material inputs through specified stage(s) of production, processing, and distribution, e.g., the factory location and production date of polysilicon used in a finished solar module. The Protocol aims at helping capture and making transparently available to stakeholders which companies and facilities participated in the manufacturing of renewable energy products on the market.
