Structural Integrity Technical Group Meeting 2021: Overview

30 Mar 2021 8:48 AM | Anonymous

Our first Structural Integrity Technical Group Meeting of this year will be looking at 'Latest Developments in Fitness for Service Procedures in BS7910, R6 and ASME/API579,' and will be hosted online on the 15 April.

This online afternoon event will look into the application of fitness-for-service procedures within multiple industries, globally, being dominated by three key codes and standards:

  • BS7910
  • R6
  • ASME/ API579

Each of these codes/standards have recently or are currently in the process of being revised and The Welding Institute’s Structural Integrity Technical Group has organised for experts with detailed experience and knowledge of the developments of each of these codes/standards to deliver presentations at this technical event, highlighting the most significant changes. Our speakers are highly experienced engineers who chair or are Members of one or more of the committees overlooking the development of these codes/standards.
