Welder qualification codes/procedures to:

  • BS EN ISO 9606 part 1 – 5
  • BS 4872 parts 1 & 2
  • BS EN 287
  • BS EN ISO 15614 parts 1 – 14
  • ASME Section IX

These international standards specify the requirements for welder’s qualification in welding of most materials. These codes provide us with a certain set of rules for qualification of welders regardless of any type of industry. These codes refer to welding that are manual of partly mechanised welding and covers all type of welded joints.

BS EN 287

This European standard defines the qualification for welders in steel BS EN 287 will be replaced by EN ISO 9606 part 1 in October 2015.

BS 4872 parts 1 & 2

British standard BS 4872 parts 1&2 is for manual or semi-automatic fusion welding of steel fabrications for which the welding procedure does not have to be approved. 

ASME Section IX
