AS 2885.3 Part 9 clause 9.4.2.7, two questions related to its reference to AS2885.2:

1) 2nd paragraph: "Such anomalies shall be accepted, provided they comply with the workmanship criteria set out in AS2885.2", the anomaly on weld is to be accepted to the current AS2885.2 standard? Even though the weld may have been completed to a different standard when it constructed (say in 1976 or so)?

2) How do we determine when the anomalies near the weld shall 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?
