BS EN ISO 4063:2010 Welding and allied processes. Nomenclature of processes and reference numbers

BS EN ISO 4063 is an International Standard which establishes a nomenclature for welding and allied processes, with each process identified by a reference number.

BS EN ISO 4063 covers the main groups of processes (one digit), groups (two digits) and subgroups (three digits). The reference number for any process has a maximum of three digits. This system is intended as an aid in computerization, drawings, the drafting of working papers, welding procedure specifications, etc.
