IIW commitment for the global community

IIW is strongly committed to the advancement of welding and joining for a safer and sustainable world and operates since its foundation on mutual respect for diversity, culture and languages.

We profoundly believe in the essential role that welding, joining and advanced manufacturing play in the improvement of the quality of life for everyone, at the global level. As such the Association offers a wide range of opportunities for individuals, companies, organisations and institutions to elevate their approach to manufacturing and use of welded constructions.

IIW Standards, Best Practices and position statements ensure the higher standards and reliability of welded construction.  Our training and qualifications help elevate the technical culture and harmonise behaviours in the technical discussions.  Our events are a platform for the exchange of knowledge, technical cultures, expertise and competence in a widespread range of topics.

IIW legacy programs are designed to effectively support communities and individuals:
