The Welding Institute


International Institute of Welding (IIW)

The mission of the International Institute of Welding (IIW) is "to act as the worldwide network for knowledge exchange of joining technologies to improve the global quality of life."

The IIW's mission is to operate as the global body for the science and application of joining technology, providing a forum for networking and knowledge exchange among scientists, researchers and industry. Through the work of its 26 Technical Commissions and Working Units, the organisation's technical focus encompasses the joining, cutting and surface treatment of metallic and non-metallic materials by such processes as welding, brazing, soldering, thermal cutting, thermal spraying, adhesive bonding and microjoining.  IIW's work also embraces allied fields including quality assurance, non-destructive testing, standardization, inspection, health and safety, education, training, qualification, design and fabrication.

Our position as the UK IIW Member and Authorised National Body presents Members of The Welding Institute with the opportunity to take part in the IIW Technical Commissions, where they can contribute to and hear about innovation in the field of materials joining, and to access IIW certification schemes via TWI.

Members are able to participate in IIW events which bring together the international materials joining community.

Members have the option to participate in the UK section of the IIW Committee which grants access to the IIW's vast technical database, with more than 15,000 key documents from over 60 years. If you are interested, please contact us.
