Brodotrogir establishes Welder Certification Centre

Near the end of the previous year, on 14 and 15 December, the Croatian Accreditation Agency performed an assessment of the Welder Certification Centre established within the shipyard sector of the Brodotrogir d.d. The assessment team included mr.sc. Vladislav Komeštik, dr.sc. Ivica Garašić and Mladen Vrebčević, dipl.ing. The assessment has been carried out to verify the conformity of the Centre's operation with the requirements of the standard HRN EN ISO/IEC 17024 for certification bodies certifying persons, in our case welders. Accreditation is an assessment by a third party which is an independent institution, and in the national frameworks of the European countries there is only one single body within each country which may perform such activities. In Croatia, this work is done by the Croatian Accreditation Agency. The accreditation is awarded for the period of 5 years and each year an oversight of the certified body is performed.
Brodotrogir's commitment is to master the welder certification based on the HRN, EN and ISO standards, since we ourselves employ a significant number of welders who need to be checked and certified regularly, and to provide such a service to other interested undertakings and individuals as well. Certification for which we have been accredited meets the requirements of the Ordinance on Pressure Equipment, which means that welders certified by us will be allowed to weld pressure equipment.
It is noteworthy that in Dalmatia there are no certifying bodies with such authorisations as we shall have after obtaining the accreditation certificate. All welders, regardless of who their employer is, will be able to use the welder certification service, and the information concerning the certification requirements will soon be accessible on the Brodotrogir website.
