On May 29-30, 2008, the Wind Turbine Research Center (WRTC) hosted a two-day event of the 9th IEC (International Electrictechnical Commission) TC88/MT22 (Technical Committee for testing and certification of wind turbine), gathering professionals from all over the world including US, Denmark, Germany, Britain, and Japan that certify, amend, and establish assessments on wind turbine and its components, manufacturing process, and evaluation.

As wind power being one of the most talked about field worldwide, this meeting was especially meaningful for Korea's international recognition in wind power as IEC meetings have been held in wind power leading countries such as Europe and the US in previous years. Aa a rookie to wind turbine research, WRTC was able to contribute and broaden international wind power research by introducing the wind power research trends in Korea. The two-day event included presentation about WRTC research on composite materials and laboratory tours as well as introducing current research activities in wind power conducted by the Korea Registry.
