    Our talk will follow the AGM and is open to all members of the North Scottish and Highlands and Islands Branches. Other members may be able to attend should spaces become available. The talk will start at 6pm

    Overview: The latest revision of ISO 15614 Part 1, the ISO standard for the qualification of arc and gas welding procedures for steels and Nickel alloys, was published in 2017. This superseded BS EN ISO 15614 1:2004+A2:2012, which was withdrawn.

    The 2017 version of the standard is the result of an extensive and lengthy revision process completed by the ISO /TC 44/SC 10 subcommittee and differs significantly from the previous version in format, with some major changes in technical   content. This lecture presents the most significant differences between the 2017 and the previous version of the standards, explains the rationale behind the changes and provides practical guidance on how to deal with them.

    Speaker: Marcello Consonni, The Welding Institute

    Speaker Biography:Marcello joined TWI Ltd. in 2006, working in the Fracture Integrity and Arc Welding sections, after a four-year experience as a metallurgist/welding engineer with a pressure vessel manufacturer. Marcello is a certified EWE/IWE and holds a MEng in Materials Engineering. He specialises in welding engineering consultancy, support with the application of welding codes and standards and welding of high-temperature materials. He has published over ten peer-reviewed publications and conference papers, and actively participates in many national and international codes and standards committees, including those covering ISO 15614 and ISO 9606 and ASME BPVC Section IX for the qualification of welding procedures and welders.
