UKCA & CE Marking (EN 1090) and Responsible Welding Coordinator Courses

Achieving BS EN 1090-2:2018 certification for your company's fabricated structural steel and aluminum products is essential to meet UKCA and CE Mark requirements.

At SummerTech NDT Ltd, we provide comprehensive services to help you attain this accreditation. Our team offers all the necessary documentation, as well as Responsible Welder Coordinator services to ensure that you comply with BS EN 1090-2:2018 standards. We can also serve as your designated Responsible Welding Coordinator if needed. With our expert assistance, your company can confidently obtain the required certification and meet industry standards.

EN 1090 accreditation is important to your business's long term future

On 1 July 2014, under the umbrella of the EU’s Construction Products Regulation (CPR) (introduced to harmonise safety and traceability in the construction industry), EN1090 and CE marking for structural steel and Aluminium components became a legal requirement.

There are different parts to BS EN 1090-2:2018, for example Factory Production Control (FPC) and Initial type testing (ITT) to assess the manufacturing capabilities (not just in welding). The welding control stated in BS EN 1090-2 defines that welding shall be undertaken in accordance with the requirements of the relevant part of EN ISO 3834 (2, 3 or 4).


The RWC (Responsible  Welding Coordinator) is responsible for the welding process and SummerTech NDT Ltd can help you with the process specific for YOUR company ensuring full compliance with the standard.


Responsible Welding Coordinator Courses

SummerTech NDT Ltd provide a recognised Responsible Welding Coordinator training course that is second to none.

The training course content has been recognised by a number of Notified Bodies and meets all the RWC requirements for Execution Class 2. Notified bodies include Centre for Assessment (CFA), BM Trada, SCCS, Lloyds Register, BSI, ISOQAR (Alcumus) and SGS.

Since EN 1090 became mandatory in 2014 for all structural fabricators, it has been a compulsory

requirement for each company to appoint a Responsible Welding Coordinator ‘RWC’ who is responsible

for overseeing all factors affecting the quality-management system which governs their welding activities. 

The Responsible Welding Coordinator (RWC) is a role which was introduced with EN ISO 14731,

alongside EN ISO 3834 and focuses on Quality Requirements for Fusion Welding.


The EN1090 notifying bodies conduct detailed assessments of the RWC as part of their annual audits

and achievement of this award can demonstrate competence in this role.


The Course Involves the following units:

  • Welding Process Technology (MIG/ MAG / FCAW / MMA / TIG).

  • Welding Consumables & Materials.

  • Welding Metallurgy (C Mn / Steel / Stainless Steel / Aluminium).

  • Welding Design (Joint details / Preparation).

  • Welding Imperfections (Identifying causes, and taking remedial action).

  • Inspection Techniques (Visual, NDT and destructive testing.

  • Welding Procedure Qualifications (pWPS / WPQR).

  • Welder / Welding Operator Qualifications.

  • Welding Coordinator Duties (EN ISO 14731).

This course is suitable for Welders, Managers, Supervisors, Inspectors, Quality Control Personnel

and other professionals in the Structural Steel and Aluminium fabrication sectors, who are looking

to improve their technical knowledge in Welding practices, Welding Inspection, Metallurgy

and quality control, in order to serve as Responsible Welding coordinator.
