26 August 2010

Some changes to the way NZ welders qualify for structural welding will result from the Standards NZ announcement in March 2010 that NZS 4711 is to be withdrawn. With effect from 1 April 2011, new or renewal welder qualifications will not be available under this Standard. For most users of NZS 4711, AS/NZS 2980:2007 Qualification of Welders for Fusion Welding of Steels, will become the standard for welder qualification.
