To ensure a system for quality control during welding, organisations need to issue the relevant welding procedure specifications and ensure that welders are qualified and appropriately trained and tested.
To qualify a welder, the welder will weld a test sample to the relevant certified weld procedure specifications.
Ultratest will then perform a Macroscopic Examination of the weld to qualify the welder to these specifications.
Ultratest develop and certify weld procedures and welder qualifications to the following standards.
