PQR AWS can I extract WPS with ISO code?

PQR AWS can I extract WPS with ISO code?

I have a PQR tested and approved by Bureau Veritas, in conformance with the requirements of clause 4 of AWS D1.1.
I've sent to client a WPS where I write "reference standard ISO 15614".
Is that a mistake? Because I can't find nothing in the rules.

RE: PQR AWS can I extract WPS with ISO code?

First thing you must do is check the required testing requirements between the two codes.
If the requirements of ISO 15614 exceed the requirements of AWS D1.1 then you cannot try and substitute.
It is up to your client if an alternative WPS is acceptable but if you haven't done enough testing you are wasting your time,

AWS cover ISO (regarding the tests).

I don't see MT testing in AWS ?
I don't see impact tests in AWS ?
I don't see hardness tests in AWS ?

RE: PQR AWS can I extract WPS with ISO code?

Check Clause 4, Part B, 4.5.
And yes, I have for my PQR: VT, MT, RT and destructive tests (tensile, bend, impact, macro and hardness).
