How Do I Become Qualified and Approved for CE Marking?
- You need to have a factory production control system (FPC) described in BS EN 1090-1
- Have a responsible welding co-ordinator within your business
- Implement Welding Quality Management System (WQMS) procedures
- Have the system certified by a notified Body. The notified Body will then issue a FPC certificate and welding certificate identifying the execution class that has been achieved

Will my welder approvals/certificates expire?
