Stakeholders will soon be able to set their calendars according to new release dates at the beginning of Q2 and Q4 every year.
Release dates for updates and revised standards will now take place at the beginning of Q2 and Q4 every year.
To help training providers or certification bodies plan for the implementation of revised standards and criteria, GWO created 'release dates'.
Beginning from October 1, 2018, all new release dates will fall as close to the first working day of Q2 or Q4 as is practical.
The release dates are earmarked only for updates and revisions to existing training standards, training criteria or certification criteria.
New standards and safety critical updates criteria are released immediately upon approval by the GWO Steering Committee.
The biannual release dates apply to:

October 4th will be a special day as our community of safety and training in wind energy gathers in person for an all-new event in Copenhagen.
Throughout the global COVID-19 pandemic, the GWO Audit & Compliance committee has issued advisory notes communicating agreed advice, guidance and exemptions from our regular governance (requirements and standards).
Global Wind Organisation (GWO) and the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) have signed a two-year partnership agreement to highlight the importance of safety, training and job creation to power wind energy development and the global energy transition. The wind energy industry is a major opportunity for countries to create high-skilled, local jobs to boost economic growth and reach their Paris Agreement goals.
The taxonomy establishes a transparent and coherent framework to describe safety training characteristics, allowing for a better understanding of “what good training looks like”.
The modules are reviewed in response to feedback from GWO members and 2020 workplace data from G+ which places manual handling incidents in the top three most reported injury processes.
