Approved welding consumables

Our product approval schemes play a key role to the success of our reputation for quality

What is Lloyd's Register Approved welding consumables scheme?

The approved welding consumables scheme provides manufacturers with recognition for the standards of their products which, in turn, benefits their clients. Indeed, all welding consumables used in the construction and repair of Lloyd's Register classed or certified ships, other marine structures and associated machinery, must be approved by us.

Electrodes, wires, fluxes and other consumables used in the welding of normal, higher tensile, ferritic low-temperature austenitic and duplex steels and aluminium alloys must be manufactured, tested and inspected in accordance with the Rules for Materials.

How does Lloyd's Register help?

The 'live' list of approved welding consumables are available on our web site on ClassDirect.
