Frontpage About GWO Members


GWO is a non-profit membership organisation where wind turbine manufacturers and owners of wind turbines are eligible as members.

In order to become a member of GWO, prospective members must sign the GWO Framework Agreement which entails that as a GWO member, your organisation will:

  • Participate in the GWO Steering Committee to decide strategy and action plans
  • Apply GWO standards whenever relevant and possible
  • Allocate subject matter experts to:
          - develop standards in the Training Committee
          - perform non-conformity investigations in the Audit and Compliance Committee
          - share costs equally if there is no other income to cover

The members of GWO accept that GWO standards fulfill the need for Basic Safety Training. All members of GWO accept training done by a Training Provider that can demonstrate compliance with the "GWO Criteria for Training Providers" by holding a certificate for this, issued by a Certification Body in accordance with the "Criteria for the Certification Body".

All members of GWO acknowledge that beside national legal requirements, companies can set extra requirements to those outlined in the GWO Basic Safety Training.
