General Structure of Welderpassport

The Welderpassport website is essentially a web application for administering welder qualifications. (Also called codings.) There are broadly speaking two different types of welder qualifications. They are:

  • Migrant welder qualifications administered by Agents. These qualifications can be "transferred" along with the migrant welders when they are assigned to Fabricators.
  • Non-migrant welder qualifications administered by Fabricators. These qualifications are only accessible by the Fabricator that enters them.

As the migrant welder qualifications are transferred along with the welders, they need to be verified for data integrity. These qualifications are therefore reviewed by Welderpassport welding engineers before they are made available on the system. This necessarily means that there are additional steps involved in loading migrant welders and their qualifications. This also means that the welder and qualification administration procedures for migrant welders are separate from those for non-migrant "permanent" welders. Migrant welders and their qualifications can only be entered by organisations registered as "Agents" on the system. Permanent welders and their qualifications can only be entered by organisations registered as "Fabricators" on the system. If you have permanent welders, as well as migrant welders that you want to enter on the system, then you need to register two organisations. One as an Agent, and one as a Fabricator.

Types of Users

The types of users, how they are created and their capabilities are as follows:

Registering as a User

To become a "self registered" Welderpassport user, click on the "Register to use this site" link within the left hand side pane of the home page. Follow the prompts and enter a user name and password. You will receive an e-mail with your log-in details.

Agent users are loaded by the power user of the particular Agent. Likewise, Fabricator users are loaded by the power user of the particular Fabricator. (See how to load Agent users and Fabricator users in the "Loading Agent users" and "Loading Fabricator users" sections below.)

You can become the power user for an Agent or Fabricator, by registering the relevant Agent or Fabricator on the system.

Registering an Agent

To register an Agent, you need to be a "self registered" user. (See "Registering as a user" section above.) You also need to be logged into the Welderpassport website. Once logged in, all the options available to a logged in "self registered" user will be available in the left hand side pane of the home page. Click on the "Agent Home" link. This takes you to the Agent home page. In the left hand side navigation pane, click on the "Register/Edit Agent" link. You will be taken through two pages that explain the process, and requires that you make certain undertakings as a power user. Just follow the prompts. When you click on "New" on the second registration page, you will be given the fields into which to enter the information for the Agent organisation you are loading. Enter the required information and click on "Insert" to register the Agent. If you are just "trying out" the website, click on the tick box next to "Practice". This will register a practice Agent. Take note that all the information loaded on the system for a practice Agent can not be used later for a "real" Agent. A practice Agent also can not be changed to a "real" Agent. The data associated with practice Agents may be deleted from the system without warning. For a "real" agent, make sure that the "practice" check box is not checked. Also ensure that the "Active" check box is checked. If you later want to stop using this Agent, then just uncheck the "active" check box. You will note that there are a number of different geographic areas listed. Place a check next to the areas in which your Agent organisation wants to operate. Theoretically you can enter as many Agent organisations as you like, but most people will enter only one active one, and possibly one as a "practice" Agent organisation. Also notice that you are able to edit the information associated with a given Agent by clicking on the "edit" link. If you have entered more than one Agent, you can navigate between them by clicking on the navigation buttons.

Registering a Fabricator

To register a Fabricator, you need to be a "self registered" user. (See "Registering as a user" section above.) You also need to be logged into the Welderpassport website. Once logged in, all the options available to a logged in "self registered" user will be available in the left hand side pane of the home page. Click on the "Fabricator Home" link. This takes you to the Fabricator home page. In the left hand side navigation pane, click on the "Register/Edit Fabricator" link. You will be taken through two pages that explain the process, and requires that you make certain undertakings as a power user. Just follow the prompts. When you click on "New" on the second registration page, you will be given the fields into which to enter the information for the Fabricator organisation you are loading. Enter the required information and click on "Insert" to register the Fabricator. If you are just "trying out" the website, click on the tick box next to "Practice". This will register a practice Fabricator. Take note that all the information loaded on the system for a practice Fabricator can not be used later for a "real" Fabricator. A practice Fabricator also can not be changed to a "real" Fabricator. The data associated with practice Fabricator may be deleted from the system without warning. For a "real" Fabricator, make sure that the "practice" check box is not checked. Also ensure that the "active" check box is checked. If you later want to stop using this Fabricator, then just uncheck the "active" check box. Theoretically you can enter as many Fabricator organisations as you like, but most people will enter only one active one, and possibly one as a "practice" Fabricator organisation. Once the Fabricator has been loaded, you will see the information displayed in the web page. Below the Fabricator information, you will also see that there is the option to load "facilities or locations" for each Fabricator. The idea is that a Fabricator may operate a number of different facilities or locations, and later it will be possible to assign the Fabricator's welders to a particular facility or location. This just makes it easier to track welders for large Fabricator organisations. To add a new location or facility, just click on the "new" link. You can add as many facility / locations as you like for each Fabricator. Also notice that you are able to edit the information associated with a given Fabricator or facility by clicking on the "edit" link. If you have entered more than one Fabricator or facility, you can navigate between them by clicking on the navigation buttons.

Loading Agent Users

To load Agent users, you need to be the "power user" for your Agent organisation. (See the section "Registering an Agent" above for more details.) First you need to login. From the home page, click on the "Click Here to Login" link in the left hand side navigation pane. Enter your user name and password. If you are a power user, you can then click on the "Agent Home" link in the left hand side navigation pane. On the Agent home page, you then need to click on the "Add Users for Agents" link in the left hand side navigation pane. The "Edit Agent Users" page will then be opened, showing all the Agent organisations for who you are the power user. Click on the "Select" link of the organisation for which you want to add users. Once selected, click on the "Add New User" link that then appears. You will then be able to follow the instructions on the page to load or delete any users for the Agent.

Loading Fabricator Users

To load Fabricator users, you need to be the "power user" for your Fabricator organisation. (See the section "Registering a Fabricator" above for more details.) First you need to login. From the home page, click on the "Click Here to Login" link in the left hand side navigation pane. Enter your user name and password. If you are a power user, you can then click on the "Fabricator Home" link in the left hand side navigation pane. On the Fabricator home page, you then need to click on the "Add Users for Fabricators" link in the left hand side navigation pane. The "Edit Fabricator Users" page will then be opened, showing all the Fabricator organisations for who you are the power user. Click on the "Select" link of the organisation for which you want to add users. Once selected, click on the "Add New User" link that then appears. You will then be able to follow the instructions on the page to load or delete any users for the Fabricator.

Agent User Actions

All Agent users must be loaded on the system by the Agent organisation's power user. (See "Loading Agent Users" section above.) When this has been done, you should receive an e-mail giving your login details. Note that your password is system generated, and will be very difficult to remember. To change this, login to Welderpassport with the details given in the e-mail sent from Welderpassport. You can then click on the "Change Your Password" link in the left hand side navigation pane. Enter your current password and your new password and click the "Change your password" button. You will receive an e-mail from Welderpassport detailing your new login details.

To perform any Agent user actions, you need to be logged in. To login, click on the "Click here to Login" link in the left hand side navigation pane. Once logged in, click on the "Agents Home Page" link in the left hand side navigation pane. Agent users can perform the following actions:

Loading a migrant welder: A migrant welder can be entered as follows:
  1. Click on the "Add / Edit Welder" link in the left hand side navigation pane.
  2.  If there are already welders loaded for your Agent, they will appear on the "Add / Edit Welders" page. If not, click on the "New" link to load a new welder.
  3.  Enter the relevant welder details.
  4. Place a check in the check box/es next to the geographic area/s in which the welder is willing to opperate.
  5. Click on the "Insert" button. The welder is now added to the system for your Agent organisation.
  6.  You can also view the welder's details by clicking on the "Select" link next to the particular welder.
  7. This then also gives you the ability to edit any of his details, or even delete him from the system.
  8. Before you can add any welder qualifications, or share this welder with Fabricators, you need to complete a "Welder Agreement" form for the welder.
  9. Download this by clicking on the "Welder Agreement Form" link in the left hand side navigation pane and completing the relevant details, ensuring that the welder signs it. (This is a legal requirement to ensure that the welder gives his consent that his details will be placed on the Welderpassport system, and may be accessed by other parties.)
  10. Scan the completed form in, and link it to the welder by clicking on the browse button, and finding it where you saved it on your own system. Then click on the "Upload File Selected Above" button to upload the welder agreement form to the welderpassport system.
  11. If you got something wrong, you can always delete the file and upload a new one. You can also view the uploaded file.
Loading a migrant welder qualification: Migrant welder qualifications can be added as follows:
  1. Click on the "Add / Edit WPQ" link in the left hand side navigation pane.
  2. Select the welder for whom you want to add a qualification.
  3. Any welder qualifications already added for this welder will be shown. If none have been added, only a "New" link is displayed. To add a new welder qualification, click on the "New" link.
  4. The first data entry page that displays, is the "general" information about the welder qualification. Enter this information and click on the "Insert" link.
  5. Once you have entered the general information, a link appears below the welder qualification general information allowing you to enter "Process specific information". Click on the "New" link.
  6. Enter the process specific variables as required. Please note that this is one process at a time! Then click "Insert" to add this to the system.
  7. You may enter as many processes per qualification as required, however, it should never be more than 3. You can enter more than 3, but anything more than 3 will not show up in the printer friendly version of the welder qualification.
  8. Once you have completed entering the welder qualification process variables, you need to link an official welder qualification to the system that has been verified by an independent third party. This can be a scanned in paper document that you already have, or you can print out the "printer friendly version" from Welderpassport and have this stamped and signed by an independent third party and scanned in. Independent third parties are any professionally registered persons or organisations that are not affiliated to your Agent organisation. This will typically be inspection authorities or consultants. (Please note that the uploaded document needs to include any NDT / laboratory reports.)
  9. To upload the third party verified welder qualification, click on the "Browse" button and select the file from your local system and then click on the "Upload file selected above" button.
  10. Once you have loaded the welder qualification data, and linked the third party verified document to your welder qualification, you need to submit it to the Welderpassport welding engineers for review. Do this by clicking on the "Submit WPQ for Review" button.
  11. Once the submitted welder qualification has been reviewed by Welderpassport, you will either receive queries to supply more information, or the welder qualification will be released for use on the Welderpassport system.
  12. Once the welder qualification has been submitted for review, or after it has been released by Welderpassport for use, it will no longer be available for editing.
Revalidating migrant welder qualifications: Welder qualifications need to be revalidated every six(6) months per process. This means that if you have ten(10) welder qualifications loaded for a particular welder, covering different materials, thicknesses, welding positions etc. but the welder only has two(2) welding processes, then there are only two(2) revalidations that need to be loaded every six months. One for each process. Revalidations are entered as follows:
  1. Ensure you are logged into the Welderpassport system, and on the Agent home page.
  2. Click on the "Update Revalidations" link in the left hand side navigation pane. This will take you to the "Migrant welder revalidation page". All the welders for the Agent are listed on the page that then opens, for each welding process entered for the welders. (In other words, a welder that has two(2) different processes listed will be shown twice in the list. Once for each process.)
  3. Notice that there is a colunm showing the date on which each process validation will expire. There is also a "Recommentation" column which will tell you if the process is due for renewal, or has expired.
  4. Select the relevant welder that you want to add a revalidation for. You will then have the option to click on the "New" link to add a new revalidation for that welder.
  5. Click on "New". Enter the welding process, test date and test report number, and click on "Insert".
  6. You will now be prompted to enter a link to the revalidation record. This will typically be a NDT report. (Typically a radiography report.) Note that it must be in a PDF format. (This is for security reasons.) Also, it needs to be issued or endorsed by an independent third party. Select your supporting documentation and click the "Submit file selected above" button.
  7. Check your entry and edit it if required. Check your linked revalidation supporting documentation and delete if required, and re-link a new file.
  8. Once you are happy with your entry, click the "Submit revalidation for review" button. This is then submitted to the Welderpassport welding engineers for review and release.
  9. Once reviewed and released by the Welderpassport welding engineers, the revalidation details for the welder will be updated.
Assigning welders to Fabricators: The method of assigning migrant welders to Fabricators, has been integrated with a scheduling system from the perspective of Agent users. Furthermore, due to the open nature of the Welderpassport system, (Essentially anybody can register an Agent or Fabricator organisation.) it is important from a security perspective to make sure that Agents and Fabricators know with whom they are interacting. This means that to assign migrant welders to Fabricators, the following "broad" processes have been put in place:
  1. Establishment of business relationship between Agent and Fabricator organisations within the Welderpassport system.
  2. Scheduling and offering of migrant welders to the relevant Fabricator, and the Fabricator's acceptance of the offer, followed by assignment of the welder to the Fabricator. Finally retracting the assignment of the welder to the Fabricator once the welder is no longer working for the particular Fabricator.

The details of these two processes are described below:

1. Establishment of business relationship between Agent and Fabricator: The initial contact between Agent and Fabricator still needs to be through the normal business channels. Typically the process will be as follows:
  1. The Agent contact his client in the normal manner, and requests that the Fabricator invite the Agent organisation as a business partner.
  2. Once the Fabricator has done this, the Agent user (after logging-in) goes to the Agent Home Page.
  3. In the left hand side navigation pane, click on the "Edit Fabricators as partners" link.
  4. The first page will open showing the currently available Fabricators. Click on "Select" next to the relevant Fabricator, to see the Fabricator's details.
  5. Click on the "Accept nominations from Fabricators to supply welders" link. This will take you to the second page showing the available Fabricators to "Accept".
  6. Click on "Select" next to the Fabricator you want to accept as business partner. Again this Fabricator's details will appear so that you can verify that it is indeed the correct organisation that you want to do business with.
  7. If you are certain that it is the correct organisation, click on the "Click to accept selected Fabricator as business partner" button. This Fabricator will now have a check mark in the "Accepted" column.
  8. If required, you can make the Fabricator "Inactive" by selecting the Fabricator and clicking on the button marked "Click here to make Fabricator inactive", on the page where you can view selected Fabricators.
2. Scheduling and offering of migrant welders to Fabricators: To offer welders to Fabricators, proceed as follows:
  1. Click on the "Schedule Welders" link in the left hand side navigation pane. A page will open showing all your organisation's migrant welders listed.
  2. Select the welder you want to schedule. Once selected, the particular welder's welding processes are displayed, along with his/her validation status.
  3.  To schedule the welder, click on the "Edit welder schedule" button. This opens the schedule page.
  4. To enter a new schedule entry, click on the "New" link. You will now be able to select the Fabricator the welder is to go and work for, the start and end dates, a message that will be visible to the Fabricator, and if you want to just schedule the welder, or actually offer him/her to the Fabricator. Click on "Insert" to capture the schedule entry.
  5. The Fabricator will then be able to accept or reject the offered welder, or possibly request more information etc. This will be reflected in the "Acceptance Status" and "Fabricator comment" columns on the welder scheduling page. Depending on the circumstances, you as Agent user can then again add comments to the "Agent comment" field as required, until both parties are happy with the offer.
  6. Once Fabricator has accepted the offer, and the time comes for the welder to actually go to work for the Fabricator, then from the "Welder scheduling page", click on the "Click to assign welder to Fabricator in selected schedule entry" button. The "Offer status" will now become "Assigned".
  7. You can make as many schedule entries for any welder as you want to, but a welder can only be assigned to one Fabricator at a time. Before the welder can be assigned to the next Fabricator, s/he needs to be "Unassigned". This is done simply by entering a short description of the type of work performed by the welder during his/her last assignment, and clicking the "Click to UNassign a welder from the current Fabricator". (Note that the Fabricator can also "Return" the welder from his side if the welder's work is finished. It is preferable for the Fabricator to perform this step, as s/he will have the best feedback on the welder's performance and type of work performed.)
Fabricator User Actions

All Fabricator users must be loaded on the system by the Fabricator organisation's power user. (See "Loading Fabricator Users" section above.) When this has been done, you should receive an e-mail giving your login details. Note that your password is system generated, and will be very difficult to remember. To change this, login to Welderpassport with the details given in the e-mail sent from Welderpassport. You can then click on the "Change Your Password" link in the left hand side navigation pane. Enter your current password and your new password and click the "Change your password" button. You will receive an e-mail from Welderpassport confirming your new login details.

To perform any Fabricator user actions, you need to be logged in. To login, click on the "Click here to Login" link in the left hand side navigation pane. Once logged in, click on the "Fabricator Home Page" link in the left hand side navigation pane. Fabricator users can perform the following actions:

Loading a welder: The welders added by a Fabricator is a non-migrant welder. Only the Fabricator entering the welder on the system has access to his/her details. Welders can be entered as follows:

  1. From the Fabricator home page, click on the "Add / Edit Welder" link in the left hand side navigation pane.
  2. If there are already welders loaded for your Fabricator, they will appear on the "Add / Edit Welders" page. If not, click on the "New" link to load a new welder.
  3. Enter the relevant welder details.
  4. Click on the "Insert" button. The welder is now added to the system for your Fabricator organisation.
  5.  You can also view the welder's details by clicking on the "Select" link next to the particular welder.
  6. This then also gives you the ability to edit any of his details, or even delete him from the system.

Loading a welder qualification: Welder qualifications can be added as follows:

  1. Click on the "Edit Welder Qualifications" link in the left hand side navigation pane.
  2. Select the welder for whom you want to add a qualification.
  3. Any welder qualifications already added for this welder will be shown. If none have been added, only a "New" link is displayed. To add a new welder qualification, click on the "New" link.
  4. The first data entry table that displays, is the "general" information about the welder qualification. Enter this information and click on the "Insert" link.
  5. Once you have entered the general information, a link appears below the welder qualification general information allowing you to enter "Process specific information". Click on the "New" link.
  6. Enter the process specific variables as required. Please note that this is one process at a time! Then click "Insert" to add this to the system.
  7. You may enter as many processes per qualification as required, however, it is assumed to never be more than 3. You can enter more than 3, but anything more than 3 will not show up in the printer friendly version of the welder qualification.
  8. Note that if there is not a relevant entry available in any of the drop down boxes, you need to add the relevant information by selecting the relevant link in the LHS navigation pane. (e.g. Material Specifications or welding process etc.)
  9. Once you have completed entering the welder qualification process variables, you would normally want to link an official welder qualification to the system. This can be a scanned in paper document that you already have, (In your own format.) or you can print out the "printer friendly version" from Welderpassport and have this stamped and signed by relevant in-house personnel, or an independent third party and scanned in. (Please note that the uploaded document would typically include any NDT / laboratory reports.)
  10. To upload the scanned in verified welder qualification, click on the "Browse" button and select the file from your local system and then click on the "Upload file selected above" button.
Revalidating welder qualifications: Welder qualifications need to be revalidated every six(6) months per process. This means that if you have ten(10) welder qualifications loaded for a particular welder, covering different materials, thicknesses, welding positions etc. but the welder only has two(2) welding processes, then there are only two(2) revalidations that need to be loaded every six months. One for each process. Revalidations are entered as follows:
  1. Ensure you are logged into the Welderpassport system, and on the Fabricator home page.
  2. Click on the "Welder Validations" link in the left hand side navigation pane. This will take you to the "Welder Validation status page". All the welders for the Fabricator are listed on the page that then opens, for each welding process entered for the welders. (In other words, a welder that has two(2) different processes listed will be shown twice in the list. Once for each process.)
  3. Notice that there is a colunm showing the date on which each process validation will expire. There is also a "Recommentation" column which will tell you if the process is due for renewal, or has expired.
  4. Select the relevant welder that you want to add a revalidation for. If you have previously loaded revalidations for this welder, it will be displayed below. You will then have the option to click on the "New" link to add a new revalidation for that welder, or to edit existing revalidations, if you need to make changes.
  5. To add a new revalidation, click on "New". Enter the welding process, test date and test report number, and click on "Insert".
  6. You will now be prompted to enter a link to the revalidation record. This will typically be a NDT report. (Typically a radiography report.) Note that it must be in a PDF format. (This is for security reasons.) Typically it would also, be issued or endorsed by a third party laboratory. Select your supporting documentation and click the "Submit file selected above" button.
  7. Check your entry and edit it if required. Check your linked revalidation supporting documentation and delete if required, and re-link a new file.
Establishment of a business relationship between Agent and Fabricator: The initial contact between Agent and Fabricator still needs to be through the normal business channels. Typically the process will be as follows:
  1. The Agent contacts his client in the normal manner, and requests that the Fabricator invite the Agent organisation as a business partner. (It is best if the Agent supplies the Fabricator with the Agent organisation unique number, (32 digit) as it is possible that more than one Agent could be entered on the system with the same name.)
  2. This is done by the Fabricator user by (after logging in) going to the Fabricator Home Page.
  3. In the left hand side navigation pane, click on the "Edit Agent Business Partners" link.
  4. The first page will open showing the Agents you have already selected as business partners. (If any.) To invite a new Agent, to become your business partner, click on the "Nominate another Agent as business partner" link. This will take you to a second page.
  5. On page 2, select the relevant Agent from the first table (This table lists all the Agents on the system, so it may strech accross a number of "pages" of the table. To make getting to the relevant agent quicker, you can order the Agents by any of the columns, by clicking on the column heading.
  6. Once selected, all the details of the Agent will be displayed in a second table. From these details you can then make sure that you have selected the correct Agent organisation. If you are sure that you have selected the correct Agent, click on the button below the second table to  "nominate" the agent as a business partner.
  7. You can then return to the first "business partners" page by clicking the link at the bottom of the page. It is then a good idea to contact the Agent organisation to make sure that they know that you have nominated them. (This can be by the normal channels you would typically contact them, or by using their e-mail or phone details given on the system.)
  8. Once the Agent has activated the relationship from his side, the check box in the "Accepted" column of the first table will be checked. As long as the "Active" and "Accepted" check boxes are both checked, two way communication is possible, and you can do business with this Agent via the Welderpassport system.
  9. If you no longer want to do business with an Agent selected by yourself previously, you can make the relationship "Inactive" by clicking on the button marked "Click here to make Agent inactive", on the page where you can view the selected Agents.
Accepting a migrant welder offered by an Agent: To review and accept a migrant welder offered  by an Agent, proceed as follows:
  1. After logging-in to the Welderpassport website, click on the "Fabricator home" link in the left hand side navigation pane.
  2. From the Fabricator home page, click on the "Administer Agent welders" link in the left hand side navigation pane. A list of Agents that you have nominated as business partners is then shown.
  3. "Select" the Agent from whom you want to accept welders, and click on the "View welders offered by selected Agent" link.
  4. A list of welders on offer from the relevant Agent will then be displayed. "Select" the welder that you are interested in. The selected welder's welder qualifications and validation status will be displayed, along with his/her other details, and the scheduling and offer information from the Agent.
  5. To accept, reject or otherwise make comments regarding the offered welder selected, click on the "Edit" link below the welder information.
  6. Enter any comments you may have that you want the Agent to see, (e.g. logistical issues, additional information or instructions etc.) and select the relevant "acceptance status". (e.g. Accepted, rejected, review details etc.) Finally click on the "Update" link to update the particular offer from the Agent.
  7. The Agent will then finalise the agreement by updating the "offer status" from his/her side. Once the offer status is changed to "Assigned", you as Fabricator will have closer access to the migrant welder's details. This will only happen shortly before the welder starts work with the Fabricator, as the welder can only be assigned to one Fabricator at a time.
  8. Once the work of the welder is completed, you as Fabricator can enter some comment regarding the type of work that the welder performed. Then click the "Click to return welder to Agent" button to terminate the current assignment of the welder to your Fabricator organisation. (Note that this step can be performed by either the Fabricator or the Agent.)
Revoking a welder's qualifications: Welder Performance Qualifications (WPQ's) are revoked per process. Generally speaking there are two broad categories of welder qualifications that can be revoked. They are migrant welder qualifications and qualifications of a Fabricator's own welders. Revoking the qualifications of a Fabricator's own welders is quite streight forward, as it is considdered an "in-house" concern. No costs are associated with this. In the case of Agent supplied migrant welders, these revokations are reviewed by Welderpassport welding engineers, to ensure that the necessary requirements have been met. A cost is therefore associated with this. The steps required to revoke a welder's WPQ's are as follows:
  1. From the Welderpassport home page login, and then click on the "Fabricator Home" link in the left hand side navigation pane.

  2. From the Fabricator home page, click on the "Revoke Process" link in the left hand side navigation pane. This will take you to the "Revoke Welder Qualifications" page.

  3. On this page, you will be presented with a table listing all welders associated with your organisation. This includes your own Fabricator welders and Agent supplied migrant welders. Migrant welders can be identified by a check mark in the "Agent Welder" column of the table.

  4. Select the welder for whom you want to revoke a process. Once selected, a second table will appear that shows all the revokations that you have previously entered for that welder. If none have been entered previously, no entries will be displayed. In the case of your own welders, you will have the option to edit or delete any revokations entered. In the case of Migrant welders, you will only have he option to select the existing revokations.

  5. To enter a new revokation, click on the "New" link displayed. A table will appear, where you can enter the process to be revoked, a description of the grounds for revoking the process, and the date associated with the failures leading to the revokation. Once this information has been entered, click on the "Insert" link to enter the information into the Welderpassport database.

  6. A box will appear that allows you to browse for a file containing supporting documents. In the case of migrant welders, these supporting documents need to be endorsed by an independent third party. The file needs to be in PDF format. Click on the "Submit file selected above" button to submit the file selected to the Welderpassport system.

  7. In the case of migrant welders, you then need to click on the "Submit Revoke Process for review by Welderpassport" button. If you do not do this, the entry will not be reviewed by Welderpassport, and will not become active on the system. This step is not required for your own non-migrant welders.
