ASME "Safety Code act"

ASME "Safety Code act"

Can anyone verify whether it is really required to re-qualify welders every 2 years under the ASME Safety Code Act.  A customer claims this is the case, but this particular customer frequently asserts things that turn out to be incorrect.  He claims it is the law in Alberta, Canada, but I have not heard of this before since I am not from Canada.  Any Canadians out there familiar with this?

RE: ASME "Safety Code act"


Chap 6
Following the initial authorization of the Welder/Welding Operator or Brazer/Brazing Operator Performance Test, every welder/welding operator or brazer/brazing operator shall be re-tested at an interval not to exceed 12 months with the following exceptions:
a)If the organization holds a Certificate of Authorization for boiler or pressure vessel fabrication from TSSA or ASME.
