Falsified Inspector diplomas
Recently, three instances of falsified Level 1 SAIW Welding Inspection Diplomas have been presented to end-users as evidence of qualification as SAIW Welding Inspectors.
Fabricators and end-users who use the services of welding inspectors are advised to ask for original diplomas before hiring, as in one of the cases the falsified diploma had been verified as a copy of the original.
The diplomas presented were in the following names:
Marthinus Nel: ID No. 7609235105088
Chadleigh Farron David: ID No. 9102145139080
Frans Matthysen:ID N0. 7608015195087
On receiving an official complaint it is dealt with in accordance with the SAIW Certification Appeals and Complaints procedure and appropriate action is taken, which may include:-
counselling of the individual
cancellation of the certificate or diploma, if the owner colluded in the misuse,
prosecution for fraudulent misrepresentation,
