The inspector is responsible for judging the acceptability of a product according to a written specification. The inspector must understand both the limitations and intent of the specification. The goal of the welding inspector is to strive for the required quality, but not to delay completion and delivery schedules without proper cause. Welding inspectors find themselves working in dozens of different industries, with each situation having slightly different job responsibilities. Among those industries employing welding inspectors are energy production, chemical processing, petroleum product refining and distribution, transportation, and bridge and building construction (see Figure 1.1). The welding inspector is a composite person-a highly qualified specialist in the field of welding. Welding inspectors can be classified as: • Code or governing agency inspector • Purchaser's, customer's, or owner's inspector • Fabricator's, manufacturer's, or contractor's inspector • Architect's or engineer's inspector Even though the in-house inspector may have different duties from the outside inspector, only a single inclusive category of inspector is considered within this manual. The content of this manual may sometimes apply to all the categories above or be limited to one or more of them. In all cases, however, the inspector has the necessary qualifications and is competent to make the examinations appropriate for the type of weldment being inspected.
