Does anyone know of a requirement within the AWS Structural Welding Code that states that all on-site welding should be tested?
We are requesting the contractor to carry out NDT's on a series of full strength butt welds that are being done on-site. He is trying to claim a variation for the testing as our specs do not specifically state that testing is required. Our generic spec states that 'all welding to be done in accordance with AWS Structural Welding Code'. I'm wondering if there is a clause in the code which helps us here..?
Any advice greatly appreciated
