Personal Certification Welding
Authorities, standards and customers can make demands that the welding work be carried out by certified welders. The certificates are personal and are obtained after an approved welding test. The certificates are valid for 2 or 3 years (depending on the standard) provided the welder can demonstrate that he/she maintains his/her competence. DEKRA Industrial AB is an accredited certification body according to ISO/IEC 17024 and a Notified Body according to the Pressure Vessels Directive 2014/68/EU.
DEKRA certifies Welders according to the entire SS-EN ISO 9606 series as well as welding operators/machine operators according to SS-EN ISO 14732. DEKRA also performs personal certification for solderers according to SS-EN 13585.
With around fifty welding supervisors at various locations in Sweden, you are always close to certification. With DEKRA's web tool "welDBase" you easily get an overview of the company's certifications.
Inform DEKRA if special needs exist.
If you have questions about certification, contact one of our experts, you will find their contact details further down the page.
