Guidance and certification assistance

Specifications increasingly make reference to European Standards, imposing stricter requirements on welders, welding coordinators, welding procedures and welding work to be done. Welding coordinators have become key function holders for companies where quality of welds and welding procedures are important. Moreover, European law and regulations regularly refer to international codes and standards. In short, welding quality systems have gradually taken on an increasing importance.

Do it yourself or trust an expert?

Many companies find it hard to implement a welding quality system or to draw up a quality manual. Our welding engineers are qualified to work according to the main international welding standards, many of them have been involved in guiding companies to certification. Their skills have often proven valuable in providing quick and efficient results. Guidance from the early start of the quality system implementation, audit/certification included.

Guidance, also after certification

Certification obtained? The BWI support remains stand-by. Our welding engineers are available to ensure compliance of your welded constructions with European standards and to streamline your Quality Management System to new requirements.
