Welding Certification and Material Services

Contact us

To meet both statutory and client requirements, manufacturers need independent welding procedure qualification and welder approvals.

Due to statutory and client requirements, it is necessary for manufacturers to verify that welding procedures are suitable for the construction materials chosen and that their welders are capable of performing these welding procedures competently. Therefore, manufacturers should always have their procedures and welders approved and certified.

Materials used are also scrutinized to make sure that they conform to the parameters of their chemical and mechanical properties. This procedure has led to the requirement for authentication of material certificates.

Our solution
VELOSI provides important testing and approval certification services for welding procedures and welder competency. We evaluate each welding procedure to ensure that it is suitable and safe. Our welding engineers can also help clients develop their procedures if they lack that capability themselves. When the procedure has been approved, we test your welders against it to make sure that they are capable of conducting the procedure.

We offer material certification services by conducting source inspection on site during manufacturing through surveillance inspections or detailed inspections and providing certification according to BSEN standards. Successful certification results in issuing the 3.2 certificate as defined in EN 10204 ‘Metallic Products - Types of inspection document’.

Our inspectors observe all the testing in the process to ensure the integrity of the materials. Traceability is mandatory under statutory requirements; however, VELOSI can assist clients if they have material that lacks traceability by authenticating it at a recognized laboratory. We are also authorized to supervise and endorse material transfers and material certificates.

Benefits
By using VELOSI’s comprehensive services, you guarantee that your product or service is being manufactured using sound practices and good materials. Furthermore, it ensures that the welding procedures, welders and materials are properly approved and certified in line with statutory requirements and industry expectations, helping to build customer confidence.
