A Welding Inspector is supposed to inspect welding. Its as simple as that. During tank construction, Welding Procedure Specification, Procedure Qualification Records and Welder Qualification Test are to be reviewed, witnessed and approved by a Welding Inspector. On-going welding jobs are to inspected and recommendations for NDT prior to approval, is also the Welding Inspector's responsibilities. Other responsibilities include but not limited to electrodes management and handling, installation sequence and hydrotest procedures for tank foundation consolidation.
Depending on what codes the tank construction is referenced to, I would suggest you start looking at API650 and/or BS2654 (now EN14105)

If there are other inspectors for doing QA functions such as raw material qualification, design review etc., your role will be limited to fit up inspection, and inspection of welds (root pass, final etc.) using VT, PT, RT etc., as specified in the approved QA procedure. If you are the only QA guy around for the job, then you would be required to do A to Z of the QA functions as specified in the approved QA procedure.

Wish you the best.
