ISO/TC 44 produces standards in the field of welding of any metallic and non metallic material, by all processes, as well as allied processes.

These standards include vocabulary, and the symbolic representation of welds on drawings, welding consumables, equipment, welding processes for fabrication rules, methods of test and control, evaluation and design of welded assemblies, personnel qualifications, as well as health and safety.

Electrical safety matters related to welding are excluded from the scope of ISO/TC 44 (under the responsibility of IEC/TC 26).

On this website, you will find news in the field of welding standardization and the interpretation process for welding standards. Interpretation sheets on ISO 9606 and ISO 15614 can be downloaded for free from this website.
