Thursday, October 10th
Mic Mac Amateur Aquatic Club, 192 Prince Albert Road, Dartmouth, NS B2Y 1M8

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.
