BCSA to launch RWC scheme
In response to the impending CE Marking legislation, the BCSA is considering the provision of a Responsible Welding Coordinator (RWC) scheme for its members.
CE Marking is expected to come into force in January 2010 and to become mandatory in all European Union member states, including the UK and Republic of Ireland, by January 2012.
One of the most significant changes to be introduced by CE Marking is the requirement for a knowledgeable and competent Responsible Welding Coordinator. In order to assist steelwork contractors the BCSA scheme will provide BCSA members with the services of a qualified RWC.
BCSA Fabrication and Welding Manager Jeff Garner, says: “Along with providing a suitably qualified person BCSA’s RWC scheme will offer technical support and guidance to members on how to set up and implement Welding Quality Management systems consistent with the new CE Marking requirements.”
