My NOBO BV is telling me that due to the new 2011 EN287 that I need to qualify fillet welds, which in the new standard it calls for. But in the front of the new standard it says "At the end of its period of validity, the existing and valid qualification testing of welders in accordance with requirement of the previous edition of this standard may be revalidated according to the previous edition."
Since my previous WPQs qualified the fillet from the Butt Weld test they should be grandfathered in correct? I shouldn't have to qualify fillet welds.
