This European Standard is part of a series of standards, details of this series are given in EN ISO 15607:2003,
This standard specifies how a preliminary welding procedure specification is qualified by welding procedure tests.
This standard defines the conditions for the execution of welding procedure tests and the range of qualification for
welding procedures for all practical welding operations within the range of variables listed in clause 8.
Tests shall be carried out in accordance with this standard. Additional tests may be required by application
This standard applies to the arc and gas welding of steels in all product forms and the arc welding of nickel and
nickel alloys in all product forms
Arc and gas welding are covered by the following processes in accordance with EN ISO 4063:
111 - manual metal arc welding (metal-arc welding with covered electrode);
114 - self-shielded tubular-cored arc welding;
12 - submerged arc welding;
131 - metal inert gas welding, MIG welding;
135 - metal active gas welding, MAG welding;
136 - tubular-cored metal arc welding with active gas shield;
137 - tubular-cored metal arc welding with inert gas shield;
141 - tungsten inert gas arc welding; TIG welding;
15 - plasma arc welding;
311 - oxy-acetylene welding.
The principles of this European Standard may be applied to other fusion welding processes.
