NCPWB - Core Purposes

  • To engage in research and educational work that will assist the contractors in furnishing safe and dependable installations through the use of qualified Welding Procedure Specifications (WPSs) and qualified welders.
  • To keep contractors informed of the latest methods, information and data on welding, safety and health.
  • To establish and qualify uniform Welding Procedure Specifications (WPSs) which conform with the requirements of Section IX, ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code and which comply with other nationally recognized codes for various methods of welding.
  • The NCPWB Welding Procedure Specifications are developed and qualified jointly by the members of the NCPWB and can be adopted by other members of the NCPWB under the provisions of the B31 Codes for Pressure Piping.
  • To create a force of welders uniformly trained and qualified following the uniform WPSs, thereby permitting the interchange of such welders between NCPWB members without unnecessary individual duplication of such qualification tests.
  • To assist contractors in providing the owner with quality welding at reduced costs through the use of certified welding.
  • To promote, develop the use of and generally maintain the quality of welding in the piping industry.
