RENEWAL OF CSWIP CERTIFICATES


GUIDANCE NOTES ON COMPLETING THE LOG SHEET
In order to qualify for renewal, you will need to demonstrate that you have carried out satisfactory work activity with
reasonable continuity during the previous five years. Reasonable continuity means that an absence of change or
activity (preventing you from practising the duties corresponding to your certificate) for one or several periods during
the validity of the certificate does not exceed a total of one year. Certificate holders not able to satisfy the continuity
rules will be treated as initial candidates.
Certificate holders who believe that they have satisfied the continuity rules must demonstrate it by completing the
Log Sheet. Please bear in mind that providing false information may result in your certificate being invalidated.
It is important that information is presented in a form which enables us to assess it against the requirements for
renewal. The most important parts of the Log Sheet in this respect are the entries entitled Brief outline of work
carried out for the above company. In these boxes please describe your activity bearing in mind that the following
are regarded as typical activities for CSWIP Welding Inspectors.

Application of codes and standards


Identification of materials
Pre-weld inspection and verification of preheating
Witnessing welding procedure and welder
approval testing

Correct use of approved procedures and


welders
In-process welding surveillance
Post welding inspection

Verification of post weld heat treatment


Studying NDT reports
Preparation of inspection reports
Senior Welding Inspectors may, in addition to the above, be involved in:
Supervision of welding inspectors
Interpretation of weld drawings and weld radiographs
Assessment of inspection and NDT reports
Ensuring compliance with QA standards and procedures including keeping of inspection records
Sentencing weld defects
Issuing a final certificate of compliance
In order to satisfy the renewal requirements certificate holders will be expected to show that they have been involved
in a selection (but not all) of the above, as appropriate. Involvement in only one of the above activities over the five
year period of validity may not be considered to satisfy the renewal requirement regarding work activity.
CSWIP has the right to ask the renewal candidate to forward his/her authenticated personal log of work activity.
Failure to do this or provide a satisfactory log may result in the candidate being refused a renewal and he/she will e
treated as an initial candidate. Keeping an activity Log Book is now a mandatory requirement from the issue
of your new certificate. Finally we need some indication of how you have kept up-to-date in welding technology
and a form is enclosed to facilitate this.
