    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies requirements for the approval testing of welding procedures for the fusion welding of austenitic stainless steel or ferritic steel. Excludes cast to cast fabrications. Supplementary tests may be required for particular applications; approval of a welding procedure to this standard does not suggest that the procedure is suitable for all conditions of service. Does not stipulate the method to be adopted for the administration of welding procedure approvals; at the enquiry and order stages, this has to be agreed between the contracting parties. Also gives Items in a welding procedure test and detailed definitions.
