A company that plans to weld or braze must register all welding or brazing procedures with TSSA, and all welders or brazers need to be qualified.
Here are the steps for registering welding or brazing procedures and certifying welders or welding operators and brazers or brazing operators.
For all procedure qualifications, the inspector will be required to accept welder or brazer certificates before submission to TSSA.
A welding or brazing control section must also be added to your company’s Quality Control Manual. For help, email email@example.com or ask your local TSSA inspector.
If your company is a BPV Trades Association Member with the Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Institute of Canada (HRAI), Ontario Refrigeration & Air Conditioning Contractors Association (ORAC) or the Mechanical Contractors Association of Ontario (MCAO), you may have access to procedures that are already registered. You can obtain these procedures by contacting the applicable organization.
For more information on procedure registration, visit About the Canadian Registration Number (CRN).
For more information on welding and brazing, visit the welding or brazing inspections section under Types of Inspections.
Please email each of the following documents as a separate PDF to firstname.lastname@example.org:
Procedure Qualification Record
Welding Procedure Specification or Brazing Procedure Specification
Welder/Welding Operator Certificate or Brazer/Brazing Operator Certificate
Certified testing facility report
You will receive a reply when the application has been assigned to a reviewing engineer from TSSA.
The engineer who has reviewed the procedure will contact you if additional information is required or issue an approved registration number for your procedure.
