Specification for the Qualification of Welding Fabricators
Edition: 3rd
American Welding Society / 20-Feb-2008 / 22 pages
1.1 This specification establishes the minimum requirements for the Welding Quality Program for Welding Fabricators. This specification is intended to be used by
welding fabricators regardless of the welding processes or materials used. This specification does not cover weldment design or nonwelding related fabrication processes,such as bolting and coatings. This specification is intended to offer assistance to the customers of Welding Fabricators who purchase weldments in various industry
sectors in assessing the firmÂ’s capability to satisfy project quality needs.
The welding fabricator may be accredited by AWS as an AWS Certified Welding Fabricator, providing the fabricator meets the requirements of AWS QC17, Standard
for Accreditation of Welding Fabricators for AWS Certified Welding Fabricator Program.
1.2 This specification does not address safety issues associated with welding. It is the responsibility of the Welding Fabricators to establish appropriate safety and health practices and to determine the applicability of any regulatory limitations prior to welding. The requirements of ANSI Z49.1, Safety in Welding, Cutting, and Allied Processes, plus the cautionary notes contained in the Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs) supplied by the material supplier should be part of each employerÂ’s safety program. Additional safety information is available in the Safety and Health Fact Sheets published by the American Welding Society (AWS).
1.3 As used in this specification, the word ‘shall’ denotes a requirement; the word ‘should’ denotes a guideline or recommendation; and the word ‘may’ denotes a choice.The word ‘welding’ includes brazing, and the word‘welder’ includes welding operators, brazers, and brazing operators.
1.4 This standard does not require units of measure.Therefore, no equivalents or conversions are contained except when they are cited in examples.
