What is BS EN 287-1?

BS EN 287-1 is a European Standard that defines the qualification testing of welders for the fusion welding of steels.

How does it help?

It provides a set of technical rules for a systematic qualification test for welders. It enables welding qualifications to be uniformly accepted independently of the type of product, location and examiner/examining body.

It places emphasis on the welder's ability to manually manipulate the electrode / welding torch / welding blowpipe and to produce a weld of acceptable quality.

What does it cover?

It covers fusion-welding processes which are designated as manual or partly mechanized welding. It does not cover fully mechanized and automated welding processes (see EN 1418).

NotesThis standard was reinstated until BS EN ISO 9606-1:2013 was modified and published as of BS EN ISO 9606-1:2017. This has now been completed so BS EN 287-1:2011 can be withdrawn
