Wed, 30 October, 2019

Internationally renowned for providing competence assurance of welding inspection personnel, many are surprised to learn that the first certificates issued by CSWIP were for ultrasonic inspection and radiography.

It was these first certificates that established CSWIP’s reputation amongst industry as a credible, reliable and integral requirement for NDT Inspection personnel. Since issuing the first NDT certificates in the UK in 1969, CSWIP has proceeded to issue NDT certificates to individuals across the globe.

Once achieved, certificate holders are eligible to use the CSWIP logo on their documentation to demonstrate their incorporation into this select group of personnel with an industry recognised and valued certification.

UKAS-accredited to ISO/IEC 17024, the international standard for personnel certification, and compliant with ISO 9712 Non-Destructive Testing – Qualification and Certification of NDT Personnel, CSWIP’s portfolio of non-destructive testing certifications provide a comprehensive range of competence assurance solutions for personnel working in conventional and advanced NDT.

For employers, the CSWIP Employer Specific Non-Destructive Testing scheme provides sector, product or company specific certification for personnel by applying ISO 9712 requirements to the employer’s specific products and inspection procedures.
