When conditional accreditation was granted to Rowan in February 2008, IADC documented minor program non-conformities to be addressed before full accreditation could be granted. Program modifications were then made by Rowan and verified by IADC in follow-up site visits conducted in October and November 2008. Full accreditation was issued on 10 November 2008.
