Resources on Visual Inspection and Requirements (17)

Basic information on Visual Inspection, can be found in our page Welding Inspection.

This 17th Mid Month Bulletin deals with Visual Inspection. The importance of this subject is due to its being the easiest and most economic of the Inspection Procedures.

As such it risks to be neglected as a low-tech and unimportant technique, as if it were advisable to supplant it by more sophisticated and advanced electronic or automated methods. It is not.

It would be a costly mistake to disregard Visual Inspection. It should be performed with integrity and thoroughness first of all by the welder, and then by properly trained and supervised Inspectors, conscious of the importance of their job and determined to fulfill their duties to the best of their capability.
