This Section contains rules relating to the qualification of welding and brazing procedures as required by other Code Sections for component manufacture. It also covers rules relating to the qualification and requalification of welders, brazers, and welding and brazing operators in order that they may perform welding or brazing as required by other Code Sections in the manufacture of components. Welding and brazing data cover essential and nonessential variables specific to the welding or brazing process used.
This publication is issued with an automatic addenda service. All addenda service publications are issued in loose leaf format to facilitate later insertion of replacement pages which incorporate the latest approved changes to the standard. Purchasers may wish to purchase a binder from ASME (BPVC Binder), but the publication will also fit a standard three ring binder. The addenda service includes all updates issued prior to publication of the next edition in July 2013.
