Overview

While additive manufacturing (AM) grows at a rapid pace, there is no standardised way of proving to manufacturers and regulators that AM products are safe.

AM techniques give companies flexibility to design innovative products and/or reduce production lead times, but there are still significant barriers to overcome to ensure  consistent quality and safety. To compound this issue, there are currently no global certification schemes that take into account AM-produced parts. 

This is why LRQA and industry partner TWI have introduced a broad-based, AM part certification service that spans all industries, from marine and class to oil and gas upstream and downstream.

Need help with additive manufacturing part certification?

We feel that manufacturers should be able to use AM to its full potential. 

That's why we have developed our Additive Manufacturing Product Certification service. We help manufacturers of AM parts prove to their customers and the market that their parts meet the required codes, standards, controls and best practices. We apply evolving international standards on AM, setting the requirements to prove equivalence with existing manufacturing methods, codes and standards, and apply our knowledge to help develop international standards on AM.

When we work with clients to certify their AM parts, we look at not only their designs but their material choice and supplier, as well as the AM facility they'll use. We do this through our framework, "Guidance notes for Additive Manufacturing certification"  We can also help train their personnel on the qualification and certification of AM-related facilities, materials, and components.

As AM is a relatively new technology for many industries, our certification has limitations related to process, technique, feedstock and application. Inspection requirements are specific to these criteria. Refer to our Guidance Notes for the framework to achieve certification, or contact us with details of your specific project, or questions you might have. Our expert team is here to help your organisation with the technical details.
