Approval of welding consumables
Ensure high quality results of your welding works – with welding consumables approved by DNV GL.
Welding consumables such as welding wires and rods, covered electrodes, flux-cored wires etc. need to undergo testing to meet DNV GL requirements for welding in the maritime industry.
Our experts provide approval for welding consumables according to our classification rules.
A type approval certificate is issued for each consumable - this demonstrates to your customers that your products achieve compliant weld connections. The required annual update provides further assurance that your consumables always meet the latest requirements.
To support your business, DNV GL also offers verification statements for welding consumables: We register alternative trade names and companies under which an approved consumable is marketed.
In this case, both the manufacturer and the distributor submit affidavits that prove the consumable marketed under the trade name is identical with the approved consumable.
After receiving the affidavits, our welding experts issue a verification statement certifying that the consumable has been approved by DNV GL.
