Third Party Weld Inspections
Third Party Inspections are an assurance to the customer that the manufactured item has been completed in line with all welding requirements and this item is fit for purpose. This safeguards the welfare, health and safety of the community and its environment and is a requirement on most if not all projects.
BITS Welding Inspectors have the qualifications and experience to carry out Visual Inspections in accordance with AS, ASME and other codes. Our inspectors monitor and critically examine welds before, during and after the fabrication and welding and sign off on Inspection and Test Plans (ITP). Our team takes into account the set-up of work, that specified equipment is used, correct procedures are maintained and work is performed in accordance with the specified standard.
During a third-party inspection, our team prepares a visual worksheet with all findings and comments. They also identify as well as provide advice on any areas of “Did Not Comply” (DNC) for remedial action. On completion of the project, we undertake an inspection to ensure the fabricated component complies with all the requirements of standards/codes/specifications. Once compliant, a Visual Inspection Report is prepared, stamped, signed off and provided to the client.
Our Third-Party Inspection services include:
