    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies additional technical rules for a systematic qualification test of welders engaged in fusion welding of steels. To be used in conjunction with AS/NZSISO9606.1.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies additional requirements to be used in conjunction with AS/NZS ISO 9606.1 for qualification testing of welders for fusion welding of steels, which are for certain unique Australian and New Zealand conditions. For all other situations, the requirements of AS/NZS ISO 9606.1 apply.NOTE: Appendix A provides guidance on the application of AS/NZS ISO 9606.1 in relation to this Standard.This Standard applies to welding processes including fusion-welding processes that are designated as manual and mechanized welding. It does not cover fully automated welding processes.This Standard does not deal with the certification of welders.
