BSI welding and allied processes standards cover specifications, procedures, and tests for use by welders, quality controllers, and manufacturers.
Welding is a process which needs specific controls in order to achieve the required quality. The safety, reliability and cost effectiveness of welded products requires the welds to be of adequate quality. Failing to control welding correctly can result, in the worst case scenario, in catastrophic failure, and loss of life, and at the least, delays, related costs and contractual issues, etc.
BSI publishes standards, guidelines, and specifications to help companies meet welding requirements. These publications cover a wide range of welding disciplines and areas including welder qualification and procedures, welding equipment, consumables, NDT and much more.
