The EWF - European Federation for Welding, Joining and Cutting is an association comprising one member
organisation for each country of the European Union and of the European Free Trade Association (EFTA).
Observer organisation status is available outside of these areas at the discretion of the EWF.
The Federation was formally established on the 1st of January 1992.
The EWF Courses' Guidelines cover all professional levels in welding technology and
related areas, such as Thermal Spraying, Adhesive Bonding, Plastics Welding and
Underwater Welding, leading to recognised qualifications in 34 countries.
The EWF system is recognised in Europe and abroad and its adoption outside Europe was
established through an agreement signed between IIW - International Institute of Welding
and EWF for the development of an international scheme based on the EWF Training
Guidelines and Qualification procedures.
