Brazing Certification and Brazing Operators
The qualification aims to verify the skills, capability, and professionalism of the brazing professional and qualify them accordingly, following the validity fields specified by the applicable regulations. The qualification can be conducted with reference to the following standards and codes:
International Weld is accredited by ACCREDIA, in accordance with ISO/IEC 17024, for the certification of brazers and brazing operators. International Weld is Recognized as a Third Party for the approval of personnel involved in the execution of permanent joints for pressure equipment of categories II, III, and IV, as per Annex I, Article 3.1.2 of Directive 2014/68/EU PED.
How does the qualification process for brazing personnel work with International Weld?
1. Acceptance of the economic offer.
2. Submission of the certification application.
3. Qualification activities.
4. Deliberation and issuance of the certification.
The qualification activity involves the execution of one or more sample tests representative of the production, supervised by qualified inspectors from I-WELD.
The choice of the representative sample test is often dictated by various conditions, such as the execution location (workshop or construction site), available equipment, joint geometry, acceptability criteria, material thicknesses, and diameters, and accessibility.
Destructive and non-destructive tests required by standards are carried out at laboratories accredited by I-WELD. Preparation for the test execution can occur through specific training programs or in-house training under the supervision of an expert.
The UNI EN ISO 13585 standard applies to brazers and operators involved in strong brazing, providing requirements for the execution of the process, test conditions, qualification, acceptability criteria, and validity fields for certification.
