VILLARTA DE SAN JUAN, SPAIN — Symaga has received the CE marking according to EN 1090-1:2009+A1:2001, by Bureau Veritas, for steel structures components.
Symaga said it has implemented a quality management system, which ensures a product is submitted to several strict quality controls. This is in addition to the continuing education program and quality policy of the company.
To achieve the CE Certificate, Symaga improved its factory production control (FPC), created a welding quality control plan, introduced NDT welding tests, periodic corrosion tests, material mechanical periodic tests, and added more and new end-product tests.
Moreover, Symaga has provided total NDT traceability, including welding procedures and welder homologation and welding material traceability.
Another essential issue was human resources training, because the certificate requires: welding personnel be approved according to EN 287-1:2011; welding inspectors and welding operators with NDT knowledge; and penetrating liquids and magnetic particles knowledge (training provided by TUV NORD).
