The Product Certification (PC) Scheme is a series of thorough evaluations of products to be supplied to Malaysian TSO/DSO Tenaga Nasional Berhad to ensure conformance to specifications and standards. The “Certificate of Product Acceptance” is issued to Critical Products used by the utility’s Distribution Network Division and these include primary and/or secondary products where failure can have an impact on customers, adversely affect the reputation of TNB and threaten safety of staff and the public or affect other connected equipment. This presentation reviews the various stages/processes involved in the PC scheme and explains the major elements when conducting such a technical evaluation.
