About

Scope

Standardization of welding, by all processes, as well as allied processes; these standards include terminology, definitions and the symbolic representation of welds on drawings, apparatus and equipment for welding, raw materials (gas, parent and filler metals) welding processes and rules, methods of test and control, calculations and design of welded assemblies, welders' qualifications, as well as safety and health.

Excluded:

  • electrical safety matters related to welding which are the responsibility of IEC / TC 26.
