Modular Wind Energy, a manufacturer of rotor blades for large wind turbines, says it has achieved certification from Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance (LRQA) as an ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management Systems compliant organization for the design, manufacture, installation and service of wind turbine blades.

LRQA is accredited by American National Accreditation Board. ISO 9000 is a family of standards related to quality management systems. It is designed to aid companies in ensuring their business processes are robust and applied consistently across the entire organization.

To become certified as ISO 9001:2008 compliant, Modular Wind Energy underwent a nine-month process that included the implementation of a formal quality management system, robust employee training on formal operating procedures and implementation of measurement systems related to quality, the company explains. 

The process ended with a five-day, third-party audit by LRQA to confirm that the company’s systems were fully implemented and met the standards required. A certificate of registration was formally issued on Sept. 27.
