Accreditation & Committees

WindGuard stands for independent services on the highest quality level.

For some of our more complex services, most of our subsidiaries are accredited by the German accreditation body DAkkS GmbH. This provides our customers with the safety of objective, internationally accepted results on a consistently high level of quality.

You can find our accreditation certificates directly on the page of each  accredited service.

Committees

Growth needs standards. The compatibility of components within the electrical grid, the connection to the grid, legal certainty for both providers and policy-makers: worldwide, experts engage in recognised professional bodies to establish common guidelines and standards. We want things to move forward. Working actively in all major harmonization and standardization bodies as well as international research projects, we don’t just work according to standards – we set them.
