Welding Procedure Certification

Our Independent Certification service comprises a complete package in respect of producing Welding Procedure Qualification Records / Procedure Qualification Records (WPQRs/PQRs). Our fully trained and qualified surveyors will attend your site and through a unique company-welder interaction method, collate all of the required data to produce the relevant certification. We then coordinate the required testing with our independent UKAS accredited laboratory, with results produced within a maximum of 3-5 days.

Our experience and knowledge ensure minimum input from our customers and minimum disruption to their operations. In an industry where lead times are ever decreasing, we guarantee to provide a service that will not disappoint, with our unique certification seal recognisable as a world-class guarantee of highest quality performance.

Welder Performance Qualification

Our Surveillance Department can independently witness and verify welders, who follow detailed written instructions to produce test pieces (usually in the form of a Preliminary Welding Procedure Specification – pWPS – or a Welding Procedure Specification – WPS). We then coordinate testing of these pieces through our independent UKAS-accredited laboratory to enable qualification or coding to a National, European or Internationally recognised standard.

We have a great Surveillance Department that can witness and verify professional welders. These are experts who can follow detailed instructions to come up with test pieces mainly in the form of preliminary welding procedure standard specifications. We then coordinate the testing of the produced pieces in our labs in a bid to enable coding or qualification to a European, National, or internationally recognised standards. Additionally, we also provide programmes for managing continuing qualifications or re-qualifications of welders. We will also organise documents showing evidence that can be used to support certificate prolongation.

We also offer a programme for managing the ongoing qualification/requalification of welders and for organising documentation of evidence that can be used to support certificate prolongation.
