These are the detailed outlines established by various agencies and organizations that explains how to lay out a particular weld, how it should be performed and tested. These detailed outlines are known as codes, standards and specifications.

Codes, standards and specifications are a list of principles, rules and regulations that are needed to ensure that skilled welders across the world can produce the same type of weld with the same level of strength, safety and reliability.

Products which are fabricated as per a welding code or standard are usually inspected and checked in order to ensure the concurrence

There are some commonly used codes for welding. These are as follows.

  1. API standard 1104
  2. ASME Section IX
  3. AWS D1.1
