CNPV continues to charge through the certifications accreditations as
part of its commitment to business excellence. Barely pausing to breathe,
determined to succeed, the Company continues to invest in its systems and
people. Recognising that the rigours of external assessment bring much higher
benefit that the approval itself, the Company continues to stretch its
targets and "punch above its weight". Never a Company to take the easy
option, it instructed TUV Rheinland to audit against OHSAS 180001 after
making internal preparation over a period of six months. The announcement
today is not only the achievement of OHSAS 18001, but the first Chinese PV
Company to achieve accreditation for ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 from
TUV Rheinland, one of the most respected certification bodies in the world.

The lead auditor for TUV Rheinland confirmed, "As a result of CNPV's
accreditation for this Health and Safety standard, and a collective review of
our database, we can confirm that this is the First Chinese PV Company to
have achieved accreditation for Quality, Environmental and EHS systems from
our organisation. We are delighted to work with them as they proceed onto
their next qualification, which judging by the speed of their recent
commitment, will be in the near future."

"Fantastic," confirmed Mr. Zhang Shunfu, CNPV's CEO and Mr B. Veerraju
Chaudary, CNPV's COO & CTO. "To be able to confirm from TUV Rheinland that
our commitment to the health and safety standards of our employees is on the
right track is very fulfilling. Our choice of TUV Rheinland, one of the most
reputed and challenging certification bodies, was driven by our wish to test
our systems, hopefully finding where we could, and can, improve to the
benefit of all. When we subsequently found out that we were the first Chinese
PV Company to achieve accreditation for the three systems from this demanding
certification organisation, our desire to develop further was further
stimulated. Our long term strategy of growth requires clear and careful
systems management. We have set demanding targets for ourselves, taken the
harder options where possible, all in the knowledge that by making change and
constantly evaluating our performance we can achieve the approaching targets
more efficiently. We are delighted that we have achieved this milestone on
our strategic map, it gives us great confidence to push forwards quickly onto
our next challenge."

OHSAS 18001 is an Occupation Health and Safety Assessment Series for
health and safety management systems. It is intended to help organizations to
control occupational health and safety risks. It was developed in response to
widespread demand for a recognized standard against which to be certified and
