About Us > The CWB Group

The CWB (Canadian Welding Bureau)
was formed in 1947 to administer the then, new W47.1 welding standard for structural steel. The CWB has today expanded its scope well beyond the original structural steel roots and is accredited by and operates under the authority of the Standards Council of Canada as a Certification Body for the administration of CSA Standards including W47.1, W47.2, W55.3, W186, W178.1 and W48 to industries across Canada and internationally for :

• Certification of companies involved in welding
• Certification of Welding Inspection Companies
• Certification of Welding Inspectors
• Certification of Welding Electrodes

The CWB qualifies welders, welding procedures as well as providing comprehensive training courses and products through the CWB Learning Centre. The activity of the CWB contributes to the high level of competence enjoyed by industries employing welding and joining and the consistent progress in welding technology, and the reliability of welded products.
