CSA Standard W47.1 (2019) Highlights - Presented by Cristian Zanfir, Assistant Manager Standards, CWB Group

CSA Standard W47.1 “Certification of Companies for Fusion Welding of Steel” is being revised and updated by the CSA Technical Committee to ensure that the certification program is continually improved in response to industry feedback and changes in technology. This new edition (2019) will supplement the provisions of the current 2009 edition of CSA W47.1.

The purpose of this presentation is to provide the audience with updates on what is being changed in the upcoming edition of CSA W47.1. The CSA W47.1 Technical Committee has agreed to the inclusion of new provisions for testing of welding personnel and procedures that will help fabricators welding steel materials less than 3mm thickness, stainless-steel materials of all thicknesses and for robotic welding applications. Also, in response to the request received from the marine welding industry the new edition of CSA W47.1 will have its own provisions for testing of welding personnel and procedures specific for Marine industry. All these new provisions that will be included in the new edition have been developed to help welding fabricators meet and exceed any other equivalent standards that are being used by the welding industry.

Also, significant changes have been made to Annexes E and G “Requirements for Impact (CVN) and Hardness Testing “ in order to address gaps in the requirements for testing and to ensure an easier adoption and interpretation by industry. The requirements of Annex E were re-organized and restructured, and a new revised table of essential variables has been added.
