D10 Committee on Piping and Tubing

CHAIR: Bill Newell, W F Newell & Associates, Inc.
SECRETARY: Andre Naumann
COORDINATOR: Sissibeth Lopez
SCOPE: Responsible for creating and revising standards that formulate safe, sound, and progressive practices for the welding of piping and tubing for all applications. This committee promotes education in the latest welding techniques.
