Event Summary: The Canadian Welding Bureau is the sole administrator of the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) welding certification programs for companies performing welding on projects following building, bridge, or other client-specified Canadian codes or standards. This presentation will provide Design Engineers, Project Managers, Procurement and Supply Chain Staff, Quality Engineers, and Supervisors with a summary of the welding requirements for Design, Welding Standards, and Certification for Structures. It will explain the connection between the CSA welding certification programs and Canadian building codes filtered through the design and fabrication standards. It will also outline the welding certification requirements and help attendees identify if they are being met by welding fabricators and erectors. At the end of the presentation, we will present some examples of welding deficiencies, and risks involved when using non-certified CWB organizations and suggest the next steps required to address them.
