Please note that, in the event of the UK leaving the EU without a negotiated agreement, some CAA website content and application forms may continue to carry the EASA logo or reference the EU or EASA rather than the UK CAA in the short term. These will be updated in due course following the UK’s departure from the EU. In the meantime, the guidance provided and the application forms accessed via the CAA website portal will continue to be valid.
Welders shall prepare and weld appropriate test sample(s) in accordance with BCAR
The test sample(s) shall be submitted to a UKAS Accredited Test House for examination together with full particulars of
the welder concerned, materials used, details of any post-welding treatment and identification marks on the test
Upon receiving from the Test House an Approved Test Certificate indicating successful test results on the sample(s)
the welder shall forward the original copy of the Approved Test Certificate to the CAA.
Please refer to the Scheme of Charges (Airworthiness, Noise Certification and Aircraft and
Aircraft Engine Emissions).
The service standard for the issue of a Welders Approval Certificate is ten working days from receipt of a completed
application and appropriate fee.
Approvals are valid for one calendar year from the issue date on the test certificate as issued by the UKAS Accredited Test House. The date of issue on the approval certificate is not indicative of the validity of the certificate.
One application form should be completed for each welders group required and forwarded to Applications and Approvals
(A&A) either by email or post.
Where multiple groups are required, multiple forms can be submitted with one payment.
