Applus+ Executes National Agreement with Regulatory Agency for the Provision of Weld Testing


    Applus+ in Canada has entered into an agreement with a national agency for the provision of welder qualification testing.

    Welder qualification testing involves the assessment of a welding operator’s ability to produce a sound weld in accordance with a given specification. During the test, a welding operator produces a test coupon.

    Applus+ then performs appropriate radiographic or mechanical tests of the weld coupon, determined by the code requirements. The assessment performed by Applus+ seeks to ensure that the welding operator can produce a weld that conforms with the requirements of the relevant welding standard.
