Mission Statement

To provide a focus for individuals and organisations involved in rail welding and to facilitate the adoption of best practice.

IoRW was established in 2002 by The Welding Institute (TWI) and Network Rail. Its mission is to provide a focus for individuals and companies involved in rail welding and to facilitate the adoption of best practice. In this context 'rail welding' means the technology and practice of track welding, joining and allied processes.

IoRW is a corporate membership organisation. It is administered by the Professional Division of The Welding Institute on behalf of a Management committee representing the members: a range of organisations with a business interest in rail welding.

The Institute also has the backing of the Civil Engineering Conference, an association of the principal rail welding contractors.

In achieving its mission to act as a focus for those involved in rail welding, the IoRW:

  • Provides regular information to members regarding rail welding, including technical meetings, a newsletter Welding Lines, and a website.
  • Promotes the advancement of the technology of rail welding.
  • Promotes professionalism, competent control and best practice management of rail welding operations at all levels.
  • Encourages training and qualification and continuing professional development.
