    Specifies procedures for visual inspection of metal products and components and includes requirements for qualification of inspectors.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies procedures for visual inspection of metal products and components, with specific reference to welded components, steel castings, and corroded metal surfaces. Procedures for conducting visual inspection under water may also be developed from this Standard. This Standard specifies requirements for the qualification of inspectors, for the viewing and illumination of items being inspected, and makes recommendations for the use of approved visual aids to optimize recognition of surface features. The qualifications for personnel to perform visual examinations are specified in AS 3998. Requirements on information to be supplied by the purchaser at the time of inquiry or order are contained in Appendix A.
