Question:

AS 2885.3 Clause 9.4.2.7, how do we determine when anomalies near the weld must undergo NDT? When the anomalies are within 300mm or 150mm or 50mm (for example) of the weld? Does the distance of anomalies from the weld depends on the welding method used?


Answer:

It is only a welding anomaly if it is within the weld metal or HAZ, all other anomalies are analysed as being in the pipe material.
