QA/QC Welding Inspector

QA/QC Welding Inspector


British Gas Approval Scheme (BGAS) is managed by The Welding Institute (TWI).

Welding inspectors are employed to assist with the quality control (QC) activities necessary to ensure that welded items meet specified requirements and are fit for their application.

For employers to have confidence in their work, welding inspectors need to to understand/interpret the various QC procedures and also have a sound knowledge of welding technology.



Visual inspection is one of the non-destructive examination (NDE) disciplines and for some applications may be the only form.

For more demanding service conditions, visual inspection is usually followed by one or more of the other non-destructive testing (NDT) techniques - surface crack detection and volumetric inspection of butt welds.



Application Standards/Codes usually specify (or refer to other standards) that give the acceptance criteria for weld inspection and may be very specific about the particular techniques to be used for surface crack detection and volumetric inspection; they do not usually give any guidance about basic requirements for visual inspection.






CINI Manual is a standard for insulation companies, industrial companies, their staff and consultants to achieve optimal quality of insulation systems.
