Working with certified welders is essential for industries that require unique welding operations. Many companies rely on certifications such as the National Board Inspection Code (NBIC) R-Stamp and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Boiler PP-Stamp to ensure that they are hiring highly qualified workers. Let’s take a closer look at what these two certifications offer, so you can make an informed decision when selecting a welding company to suit your needs.

NBIC R-Stamp Certification

The NBIC offers the Certificate of Authorization and R symbol stamp for the repair and/or alteration of boilers, pressure vessels, and other pressure-retaining items. Requirements are described in NB-415, Accreditation of R Repair Organizations.

The NBIC R-Stamp certification allows qualified companies and/or individuals to make repairs or alterations, with either the R-1 or R-2 process respectively and offers a level of quality assurance for welders. This certification indicates that the welder has passed rigorous tests demonstrating their knowledge and skill in working with various types of metals and alloys. The certification also provides peace of mind because it means that all welding processes meet or exceed industry standards.

ASME PP-Stamp Certification

ASME PP-Stamp certification authorizing the welding, fitting, manufacture, and installation of piping and components that attach to external piping used for power boilers and pressure vessels. The Power Piping PP-Stamp is governed by ASME Code section B31.1. The ASME PP-Stamp certification is issued to companies that have demonstrated their ability to produce high-quality products according to ASME specifications. This certification also ensures that welders are knowledgeable and experienced in completing projects according to exact specifications provided by clients. The ASME PP-Stamp also provides additional oversight, ensuring that all welding activities are completed safely and efficiently without compromising on quality or accuracy.
