    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies the requirements necessary for the granting of certificates to experienced welders engaged in the various welding processes used in the manufacture of pressure equipment, such as boilers, pressure vessels and associated piping, as defined in AS/NZS1200, as well as, other applications requiring a prescribed standard in the theory and practice of welding.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies the requirements necessary for the granting of certificates to experienced and competent welders engaged in the operation of various welding processes used in the manufacture of pressure equipment such as boilers, pressure vessels and associated piping as defined in AS/NZS 1200, as well as other applications requiring a prescribed standard in the theory and practice of welding.Certification in welding is related primarily to basic welding techniques and processes and not to the parent metal of the joint.Welder certification should not be confused with welder qualification (see Clauses 1.5.24 and 1.5.30). The requirements for welder qualification are specified in the appropriate application Standards.
