Standards We Work To2021-11-11T14:50:23+00:00

Accreditations We Work To

  • 17020/17024 – Tech Inspections are 9001 certified and accredited to ISO 17020 and 17024.

  • WPS – We can offer expert advice on up to date codes and standards. All testings will be at UKAS accredited laboratories.

  • EN1090 – Tech Inspections create FPC manuals for all the welding systems, weld procedures and weld approvals.

  • FPC – Our aim is to give you the highest quality welding inspection service possible.

These are the standards relevant to CE Marking:

  • BS EN ISO 15614 Specification and qualification of welding procedures for metallic materials
  • BS EN ISO 9606-1: 2013 Qualification test of welders – fusion welding. Part 1 Steels
  • BS EN ISO 9606-2: 2014 Qualification test of welders – fusion welding. Part 2 Aluminium & aluminium alloys.
  • BS EN ISO 14732: 2013 Welding personnel – Qualification testing of welding operators and weld setters for mechanized and automatic welding of metallic materials.
