Order on technical certification and servicing of wind turbines etc.
The objective of the Order is to ensure that wind turbines that are constructed on land, in territorial waters and in the exclusive economic zone and which are used for the production of electrical energy do not pose a risk to the safety and health of persons and domestic animals or the security of property when wind turbines are installed, maintained or used, and that they comply with the requirements laid down for noise emission. The Order contains certification requirements for wind turbines as well as servicing and maintenance requirements with a view
