WHC1.16 Codes and Other Standards, AWS


Chapter 16 from the Welding Handbook, Ninth Edition, Volume 1, “Welding Science and Technology,” has been selected by the AWS Product Development Committee as a service to industry professionals. WHC1.16 Codes and Other Standards, is intended to familiarize the fabricators and consumers of welded products with the basic documents that govern or guide welding activities. These documents serve to assure that safe and reliable welded products are produced and that the individuals associated with welding operations are not exposed to undue danger or other conditions that would be harmful to their health. Publications relating only to the manufacture of welding equipment are not addressed in this chapter. However, these publications may be referenced in codes and other standards, and their relationship to safety and reliability should not be underestimated.
