Welding of pipeline by ASME IX procedure

Welding of pipeline by ASME IX procedure


I need to answer the proposal to weld a 6" STD pipeline but by the usage of a WPS qualified accordance to ASME IX requirements instead API-1104.
Proposed welding process: GTAW + SMAW
The reason for the proposed procedure is the lack of time to qualify a new process according to API-1104.
The production welds will be evaluated according to API 1104.
What opinion or suggestion have you about...?

Thanks in advance for your help
