AWS Technical Standards
Service Detail from American Welding Society (AWS)
The AWS Technical Services Division oversees the development, maintenance, and publication of over 300 standards (codes, specifications, recommended practices, methods, classifications and guides) and other technical documents.
AWS standards are supported by volunteers who specialize in various industries and processes: structural, aerospace, railroad, automotive, robotics, shipbuilding and marine, bridges, heavy equipment, piping and tubing, sheet metal, brazing, soldering, plastics, thermal spray, welding product manufacturers, and general applications. AWS also publishes numerous standards and publications on safety and health in welding.
Our publications are developed through a consensus process that brings together over 1,500 volunteers representing varied viewpoints and interests in our 200+ committees, subcommittees, and task groups.
