IIW India is a member of the International Institute of Welding. It has its own Authorised National Body through which it conducts international certification programmes, such as IWE, IWT, IWS & IWP, of the International Institute of Welding. IIW-India has obtained accreditation as Authorised National Body for Company Certification (ANBCC) from the International Institute of Welding through its International Authorisation Board (IAB) for the exclusive rights within India to operate its Manufacturers Certification Scheme (MCS) for certification of companies for compliance to the requirements of ISO 3834. IIW India has its own National Welding Training and Certification Scheme (NWTCS), which has been prepared to meet the demand of industry for welders, trained and certified to a level of competency commensurate with the requirements of any of the welder qualification and certification standards or codes. IIW India is also closely associated with Prime Minister’s Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY) of National Skill Development Council (NSDC) and Modular Employable Scheme (MES) of Directorate General of Training (DGT) under Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship of Government of India.

Recognising the rapid pace of industrial growth in India, the International Institute of Welding has allotted its prestigious International Congress for 2017 to the Indian Institute of Welding. Considering the wide ranging fabrication activities in South India, particularly in Chennai, the Indian Institute of Welding has allotted its Chennai Branch the responsibility to host this Congress. The Chennai Branch of IIW India, formed in 1973, was adjudged the best performimg Branch of IIW India in 2016. It has made good progress over the years with respect to membership, technical programmes etc, due to the unstinted support of industries in the region and selfless efforts of various members and office bearers. Today the Branch has over 500 members and 25 Industrial Corporate members. It organizes technical meetings every month, courses, workshops and seminars of topical interest and visits to
important projects. With our country in the midst of a quantum leap to industrialization, the Branch hopes to contribute effectively towards improved productivity, cost effectiveness and quality enhancement to the welding fraternity in particular and industries in general. The Chennai Branch constantly audits its position and develops strategic plans to meet the latest objectives of our Country's development.

The International Institute of Welding (IIW)

The International Institute of Welding (IIW) was founded in 1948 by the welding institutes/societies of 13 countries who considered it crucial to make more rapid scientific and technical progress possible on a global level. Their vision was for the IIW to be the international vehicle by which innovation and best joining practices could be promoted, while providing an international platform for the exchange and dissemination of evolving welding technologies and applications.
From its humble beginnings, the IIW is today a universal reference, recognized as the largest worldwide network for welding and allied joining technologies, boasting a current membership of 59
countries from five continents. 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 organization'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 work also embraces allied fields including quality assurance, non-destructive testing, standardization, inspection, health and safety, education, training, qualification, design and fabrication.

In 1986, IIW was selected as one of the world's three official International Standardizing Bodies in the areas of welding and joining. Since the date, the organization, together with the practical input of industry leaders, has published eighteen international welding standards under the auspices of the
International Organization for Standardization (ISO). The standards programme covers materials, test methods, best practices, new technologies, health and safety matters, environmental issues and management. With the qualification of welding personnel now mandatory for manufacturers everywhere, IIW has established a requirements system for the proper education, training, qualification and certification of welding professionals, from engineers and technologists to onsite
practitioners. These standards enable countries to shape qualified, world-class professionals locally, thus making welding one of the only professions to have uniform requirements around
the world.

IIW's virtual library constitutes the world's largest online source of welding information available today. Members can consult and share technical documents, white papers, publications, articles and original doctoral theses not found elsewhere… comprising a database of roughly 20,000 documents, of which more than 1,000 may be downloaded from the IIW web site. And for in-print access to the latest, most significant findings of researchers and practitioners from around the globe in brief, the IIW journal, “Welding in the World”, is published six times yearly and may also be consulted online.

The Theme of the Congress

India has seen a rapid rise in industrialisation in the past few decades, due its expansion in markets such as pharmaceuticals, bio-engineering, nuclear technology, informatics and technology oriented higher education. India is poised to become a major manufacturing hub because of the relatively low cost of production, thus resulting in India going global. The structured liberalisation of the Indian economy, which has paved the way for globalisation of our industry, has had its impact on core sectors such as power, steel, oil, gas, petrochemical and transportation. Hence, there is an imperative need for the manufacturers to maximise profits without compromising on quality and by lowering manufacturing time and costs. Since welding is the most widely used engineering manufacturing process, the welding industry is also poised for a vibrant change due to the need to introduce high
productivity welding processes, cost effective designs and reliable quality control methods. Also, newer materials ranging from variations of existing metallic materials to ceramics and composites to nano-materials and others, which widely differ in their physical and mechanical properties, are being introduced for industrial use for extended life of the components. Welding of these materials poses
technological challenges in welding fabrication, leading to development of superior welding processes and quality assurance criteria. Further, the role of information technology and the need to
develop high quality products based on research-industry co-ordination cannot be overlooked.

Skill Development in welding is all set to get a major thrust in India in the years to come, with the launch of the 'Make in India' initiative by the Government of India. The Make in India initiative was launched in September 2014 to transform India into a global design and manufacturing hub. This initiative requires highly skilled manpower to make Indian products globally competitive. To meet this end, Skill India campaign was launched in July 2015 with an aim to train over 400 million people in different skills by 2022. Welding is one of the trades in this campaign. Hence, the theme of International Congress 2017 is Advances in the Science, Technology and Skill Development in Welding.

Objectives of International Congress 2017
  • to provide a dynamic forum for professionals for industries, academia and research institutes to share and enhance the latest in knowledge base in Welding Science & Technology, besides discussing strategies to make India an industrial global power. This would help the delegates
    use this forum for fulfilling the missions of their organisations.
