How do I become a consulting Responsible Welding Coordinator and offer my services on a subcontract basis?

The RWC role can be subcontracted but the responsibility for welding coordination remains with the manufacturer. Even though you may be appropriately qualified, you cannot be recognised as a RWC without being assessed as competent against the responsibilities of the specific job role that you are expected to fulfil, and this is done during the ISO 3834 assessment of the manufacturer.

Once a manufacturer has nominated you as their RWC, your ability to discharge the allocated responsibilities will be assessed and the subcontract terms will be reviewed to ensure that you have the authority to fulfil the role.
