Information for Potential Certification Applicants

Review Status of ICC-SWCC Pending Applicant Wind Turbines >>

Getting started

ICC-SWCC offers the service of independent, third-party verification that a small or medium wind turbine meets the requirements of specified standards. Applying for certification begins with a Preliminary Review of the turbine.  This is started with the submission of a Notice of Intent Form  and a Configuration Description Form where the details of the wind turbine and proposed test plans are presented to ICC-SWCC (best to be submitted BEFORE testing begins – see Applicant FAQs on timing for more details).  This ensures that the turbine is eligible for ICC-SWCC certification, and that the proposed testing will meet the program requirements – saving time and money.

Once a successful Preliminary Review is completed, a Certification Agreement is generated and the manufacturer is invited to formally apply for ICC-SWCC certification.  After signing the customized Certification Agreement, the applicant can choose to allow ICC-SWCC to publicly identify the Applicant’s name and wind turbine model and listed on the ICC-SWCC website with “Application Pending” status (“Under Contract,” “Under Test,” or “Reports Submitted”) prior to becoming certified.

After the turbine has been tested and evaluated per the specified standards and reporting is complete, the  applicant submits the required test reports, analyses and other application materials to ICC-SWCC to complete the application process.
