How Does it all work?

Weld Procedure Testing and Welder Qualification Testing

  • Under our Type A inspection body status, we provide a full Weld Procedure Qualification Record and Welder Qualification Testing service.
  • Our experienced welding examiners can travel to sites all over the UK and record all relevant welding data required  in order to gain certification.
  • Following Welding, the test pieces are sent for Non-destructive testing which will be conducted by an ISO9712 level II technician.
  • After acceptable NDT Results (if required) the test coupons will be send to a UKAS ISO 17025 mechanical laboratory for the required mechanical testing to be performed

Recording and reporting

  • Our Approved Welding surveillance personnel will attend your site and witness all welding activities, record and report on the results using UKAS calibrated equipment and compile a full documentation pack ready for certification.


  • All documentation is handed over to our Technical manager who will then produce the complete certification package, which will include a UKAS Certificate and all test data.
