5) ANSI/AWS B2.1 Specification for Welding Procedure and Performance Qualification

This specification provides requirements for the qualification of welding procedures for steel >100 ksi yield strength. Also provides requirements for the welder performance. 

6) ANSI/AWS D1.1/D.1.1M Structural Welding Code – Steel

Specified welding standard for “structural steel” in construction contracts .  Fabricators use AWS D1.1 Code for design, welding procedures & welders, fabrication, inspection. The Code details the processes, assures quality, when applied correctly and consistently.

7) Code of Federal Regulations (CFRs), CFR 1910.252 Subpart Q

Welding, Cutting and Brazing - General Requirements.  Basic precautions for fire prevention and protection.  Precautions and delineation of the fire protection and prevention responsibilities of welders and cutters, supervisors, outside contractors & management. Refer to Standard for Fire Prevention in Use of Cutting and Welding Processes, NFPA Standard 51B, incorporated by reference.

8) AISC Steel Construction Manual, 15th Edition

Steel construction codes, specifications & standards. Contains the Code of Standard Practice standards.

9) AISC Specification for Structural Steel Buildings (ANSI/AISC 360)

Specification Manual for Structural Steel Buildings (ANSI/AISC 360)

10) AISC Code of Standard Practice Structural Steel Buildings & Bridges (AISC 303)

Framework for acceptable standards when contracting for structural steel. Specific provisions are contained in the contract documents, the existing trade practices are standard customs on industry and are incorporated into the contract.

11) ASTM E23, Standard Test Methods for Notched Bar Impact Testing of Metals

The test methods of impact testing relate specifically to the behavior of metal when subjected to a single application of a force resulting in multi-axial stresses associated with a notch, coupled with high rates of loading and in some cases low temperatures. Results of impact tests on notched specimens, when correlated with service experience, can accurately predict the likelihood of brittle fracture.

12) ASTM A6, Standard Specification for General Requirements for Rolled Structural Steel Bars, Plates, Shapes, and Sheet Piling

General requirements for rolled structural steel bars, plates, shapes, and sheet piling. The steel shall be made in an open-hearth, basic-oxygen, or electric-arc furnace followed by refining metallurgy in a furnace.  Tension tests (UTS & YS) and chemical analysis shall conform to the required mechanical properties (tensile strength, yield strength, elongation, metallurgical structure and composition of each product.

13) ASTM A370, Standard Test Methods and Definitions for Mechanical Tests of Steel Products

Test methods to determine the specified mechanical properties of steel, stainless steel, and related alloy products for the evaluation of conformance of such products to a material specification under the jurisdiction of ASTM as designated by a purchaser in a purchase order.

14) ASTM A673, Standard Specification for Sampling Procedure for Impact Testing of Structural Steel

Method deals with the standard sampling procedures for impact testing of structural steel. Including longitudinal Charpy V-notch testing, two testing frequencies, (H and P), frequency (H) heat testing, and frequency (P) piece testing.

15) AWS 2.4, Standard Symbols for Welding, Brazing, and Nondestructive Examination

Method for specifying welding, brazing, and NDE information by means of symbols, including the examination method, frequency and interpretation.

16) AWS A3.0 Standard Welding Terms and Definitions

17) API 5CT Casing and Tubing Specification

Technical specifications for steel casing and tubing pipes used for oil wells in petroleum, natural gas industries and engineered structural pilings.   The Specification includes pup joints, couplings and accessory materials, and establishes requirements for product specification levels (PSL-1, PSL-2, and PSL-3). The requirements for PSL-1 are the basis of this standard.

18) American Society of Nondestructive Testing (ASNT) Recommended Practice, SNT-TC-1A

Guidelines for Employer Based Inspection, Personnel Training, Qualification and Certification. 

19) WJMG (Company) NDT Written Practices

In accordance with SNT-TC-1A, Written Practice is required with 3 sections. The employer shall prepare a document with Procedures, Personnel qualifications, Certification of NDT personnel.

20) OSHA CFRs Title 29 Labor 1901

The Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) is the codification of general and permanent rules published in the Federal Register by the Federal Government. Divided into 50 titles that represent broad areas subject to Federal regulation.
