All members of the North Scottish Branch of The Welding Institute are invited to attend this year’s Branch AGM and talk.

Annual General meeting: The AGM is an opportunity for Branch members to hear reports from the Committee on the achievements and work of the Branch over the year; to make plans for the year ahead; to review the accounts ad to elect the Committee for the next year.

The last 12 months have been unprecedented and now more than ever, Branches need to come together to provide, help support and encouragement to the membership as well as to the Institute as a whole.

Please register your attendance in order to join the meeting via a Zoom Link.

Please note, the AGM is for Branch Members only and will start at 5:30pm

Our talk will follow the AGM and is open to all members of the North Scottish and Highlands and Islands Branches. Other members may be able to attend should spaces become available. The talk will start at 6pm

Overview: The latest revision of ISO 15614 Part 1, the ISO standard for the qualification of arc and gas welding procedures for steels and Nickel alloys, was published in 2017. This superseded BS EN ISO 15614 1:2004+A2:2012, which was withdrawn.

The 2017 version of the standard is the result of an extensive and lengthy revision process completed by the ISO /TC 44/SC 10 subcommittee and differs significantly from the previous version in format, with some major changes in technical   content. This lecture presents the most significant differences between the 2017 and the previous version of the standards, explains the rationale behind the changes and provides practical guidance on how to deal with them.

Speaker: Marcello Consonni, The Welding Institute
