Welder Qualification – Structural Steel WeldingAugust 20, 2019
The Australian Standard for Structural steel welding (AS1554.1 Sec 188.8.131.52) allows welders to be qualified by one of the following standards:
· AS 1796 - Certification of welders and welding supervisors
· AS/NZS 2980 - Qualification of welders for fusion welding of steels
· AS/NZS 3992 - Pressure equipment—Welding and brazing qualification
· ISO 9606-1 - Qualification testing of welders - Fusion welding Steels
Allowing this choice may put additional burden on the Australian fabrication industry OR is this flexibility an advantage?
