Welding procedure qualification

In order for a welding procedure to be qualified, the process must be documented through testing and verification activities. The documentation for welding procedure qualification is referred to as WPQR (Welding Procedure Qualification Record) and Axess has for many years supported clients in developing WPQRs within a variety of construction environments. Providing key competence for material selections and welding processes to develop general or asset specific WPQRs.

All welding procedures supplied through Axess Is verified by DNV GL and we assist with qualification of welding procedures according to:

  • ISO 15614
  • EN-1090
  • Norsok
  • DNV GL rules for welding

Welding inspection

Weld inspections are conducted for several reasons, the most common of which is to determine whether the weld is of suitable quality for its intended application. Codes and standards developed specifically for a variety of welding fabrication applications are used during welding inspections to dictate what levels of weld discontinuities are acceptable.

By utilising our certified welding inspectors, Axess performs welding inspection before, during and after welding according to applicable requirements and specifications. Our experience from a variety of sectors have provided us with knowledge that is appraised by our clients.

Welding coordination

Welding is a special process, which requires the coordination of welding operations in order to establish confidence in welding fabrication and reliable performance in service. The tasks and responsibilities of personnel involved in welding-related activities (e. g. planning, executing, supervising and inspection) should be clearly defined.

EN ISO 3834 is a standard that ensures that quality is maintained to achieve a well-functioning quality system in the execution of various welding applications. The standard defines three quality levels, depending on the type of weld performed.

The standard is currently used in most European countries. Nevertheless, there are many companies that have not yet seen the benefits of introducing a quality system according to this standard. The requirements may come from other standards as well as from customers or authorities. Among other, NS-EN 1090-2: 2018 and standard for industrial piping system refers to this standard.

Axess possess a pool with highly skilled welding engineers that are certified according to IIW guidelines on IWT and IWE levels. Available to provide coordination services for any given welding fabrication work and at any level specified within EN ISO 3834.
