IIW Certified International Welding Specialist (CIWS)
AS/NZS ISO 3834:2008 and ISO 3834:2005 ‘Quality requirements for fusion welding of metallic materials’ define the requirements for Welding Coordination Personnel in paragraph 7.3 of Parts 2 and 3.
ISO 3834 states that “The manufacturer shall have at his disposal appropriate welding coordination personnel. Such persons having responsibility for quality activities shall have sufficient authority to enable any necessary action to be taken. The tasks and responsibilities of such persons shall be clearly defined.”
The IWS has a specific role to play as a RWC at the basic technical knowledge level.
The IWS qualification is offered by the WTIA through the IIW programme and the IIW CIWS through a certification programme maintained by the WTIA.
