NEW STANDARDS PROJECTS
Development work has begun on the following new or revised standards. Directly and materially affected individuals are invited to contribute to the development of such standards. Those wanting to participate may contact the Staff Engineer listed with the document.

Participation on AWS Technical Committees and Subcommittees is open to all persons.

B5.1:2013-AMD1, Specification for the Qualification of Welding Inspectors.
This standard defines the qualification requirements to qualify welding inspectors. The qualification requirements for visual welding inspectors include experience and satisfactory completion of an examination, which includes demonstrated capabilities, and proof of visual acuity. The examination tests the inspector’s knowledge of welding processes, welding procedures, nondestructive examinations, destructive tests, terms, definitions, symbols, reports, welding metallurgy, related mathematics, safety, quality assurance, and responsibilities.

  • Stakeholders: Welding Inspectors
  • Revised Standard
  • Staff Contact: S. P. Hedrick, x305

D20.1:20XX, Standard for Fabrication of Metal Components Using Additive Manufacturing.
The document will have 6 major sections covering general requirements, process and operator qualification, inspection, etc. This standard will provide the requirements necessary for fabricators to produce metal additively manufactured product to meet customer to a defined set of requirements and it will allow customers of fabricated products to contractually stipulate the expected properties to the fabricator.

  • Stakeholders: Manufacturers of additive manufacturing equipment, consumers of additively manufactured products and educators of additive manufacturing equipment operators and people who test and measure properties of additively manufactured products
  • New Standard
  • Staff Contact: A. M. Alonso, x299

 


STANDARDS FOR PUBLIC REVIEW
