As a not-for-profit organisation GWO is governed according to applicable Danish laws and its Articles of Associations. During 2021 GWO’s Articles of Association were reformulated and a new version approved by the Executive Committee in March. From the outside few changes were apparent and GWO organisation and governance structure remains as shown here.
The core governance of the global organisation is delegated by the membership to three committees on which their representatives sit, the Executive Committee, Training Committee and Audit and Compliance Committee. Additional regional perspective and input is provided by the two current Regional Committees (again composed of member representatives). The prominence of members in the governance structures delivers on GWOs promise to create safety training standards for the industry by the industry.
