Welder Qualification – Structural Steel Welding

August 20, 2019 0 By sajle

The Australian Standard for Structural steel welding (AS1554.1 Sec 4.12.2.2) 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?
