1 Scope

1.1

This Standard covers the certification of welding inspectors at three certification levels. It specifies the responsibilities and the basic technical functions associated with each level.

1.2

This Standard specifies the requirements for the periodic review of welding inspector certification, including vision tests.

1.3

This Standard, by including a code of ethics for the welding inspector, defines principles of practice and conduct for maintaining certification.

1.4

To assist candidates in preparing for examinations, this Standard contains knowledge requirements (see Annex A) covering

a) welding fundamentals;

b) welding inspection; and

c) welding metallurgy.

It also includes a list of relevant reference publications (see Annex B).

1.5

This Standard does not address safety issues associated with welding. It is the responsibility of the users of this Standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations.

Note: CSA W117.2 addresses safety in welding, cutting, and allied processes.

1.6

This Standard does not address the certification of individuals performing non-destructive examinations using radiographic, ultrasonic, eddy current, magnetic particle, or liquid penetrant methods. CAN/CGSB-48.9712/ISO 9712 specifies the requirements for the certification of individuals performing these non-destructive examination methods.

 1.7

This standard is not intended to specify the qualifications or supervision required to perform inspection work.  Inspector competencies are provided only to aid in establishing  training, experience, and testing objectives for each level.
