Chris Smallbone was recently inducted as the 20th President of the IIW for the period July 2005 to September 2008.
This appointment is only the second time that a representative from a Southern Hemisphere member country has been appointed to this prestigious position in the 56-year history of the IIW. It is a significant achievement for Australia and Australian industry.
Chris has given 30 years service to IIW and the welding industry world-wide. In 1992 he chaired the working group that established the new IIW Education, Training and Qualification programmes for welding personnel on an international basis, now adopted in 32 countries. Since 1993, he was the IIW Director with the responsibility for developing and implementing the very successful IIW key strategy on Regional Activities and Liaison with Developing Countries, as well as the Chairman of the Board of Directors' Task Force on Certification.
Since 1978 he has received twelve major awards for his work, from the American Welding Society (AWS), SAIW and the WTIA. He is also a Fellow of the Institution of Engineers (Aust), Institution of Mechanical Engineers (UK), The Welding Institute (UK), the SAIW and WTIA, as well as a Professional Chartered Engineer in Australia and the UK.
From April 1995 he has led the very successful team effort building up the WTIA to its present level of national and international credibility. At the WTIA, he has been involved in a series of national projects on Technology Diffusion and Innovation supported by the Australian, State and Territory Governments and industry throughout the country. Through the IIW he has undertaken a number of similar initiatives in South Eastern Europe and Southern Africa and is introducing a global cooperative project to approach the challenge of skills shortages and the improvement of the image of welding throughout the world.

Mr. Chris Smallbone, Executive Director of the Welding Technology Institute of Australia (WTIA), was awarded the IIW 2009 Walter Edström Medal for his "remarkable and distinguished contributions to the International Institute of Welding (IIW) and the international community". Fifty four (54) countries from around the world are members of IIW, and WTIA represents Australia on this prestigious body. Smallbone, pictured (left) receiving his award from Mr Lars Johansson, Head of the IIW Swedish delegation, is a mechanical engineer, an International Welding Engineer, and a Professional Chartered Engineer in Australia and the United Kingdom.

Smallbone has led a series of successful and innovative technology diffusion, networking, educational and training projects to meet the technology and productivity needs of industry throughout Australia. These have been supported by Federal, State and Territory Governments, and companies and organisations from a wide range of industry sectors around the country and held up by government as "some of the most successful networking projects" in this country.
Since 1974, Smallbone has held a number of key IIW positions. Through his role as Chairman of the IIW Board of Directors' Working Group for Regional Activities and Liaison with Developing Countries commencing in 1993, and through outstanding personal commitment, he has assisted over 40 countries to promote welding technology for the benefit of their people.
He has initiated and promoted the IIW Project "To Improve the Global Quality of Life Through the Optimum Use of Welding Technology" throughout the world. The highly successful IIW WeldCare Programme which Smallbone developed is based upon the networking concepts, involving Technology and Educational Support Centres, which underpinned his achievements in building up the SAIW between 1978 and 1993.
Recognising that access to, and the use of, the IIW Qualification and Certification Programmes are foundations for personal and economic development as well as for technology transfer, improved respect for skills and the image of welding throughout the world, he championed the development, promotion and uptake of these significant IIW products.
As Chairman of the IIW Working Group 13 of Commission XIV 1992-1999 and Chairman of the IIW Task Force for Certification 2002-2005, he has led and generated significant advances in this field.
The IIW programmes have been established by WTIA in Australia, dovetailing effectively with existing qualification and certification for welding personnel to local standards and providing international benchmarking for companies and for individuals. The certification of companies to the IIW Manufacturer Certification Scheme (MCS) for ISO 3834 is now also delivered in Australia by the WTIA and is contributing significantly to quality, productivity and competitiveness of local companies. Smallbone served as IIW Vice President 1993-1996 and 2002-2005 and became IIW President 2005-2008, introducing many initiatives including the development of an IIW White Paper, expansion of the IIW Business Plan and introduction of IIW Recognition Awards.
