The purpose of this document is to provide general set of rules for qualification independent of product or application.
All new brazing procedure tests are to be carried out in accordance with this document from the date of its issue. However, this document does not invalidate previous brazing procedure tests made to former national standards or specifications or previous issues of this document.
Where additional tests have to be carried out to make the qualification technically equivalent, it is only necessary to do the additional tests on a test piece which should be made in accordance with this document.
