This guide has been prepared to assist welding personnel with the preparation of welding procedures
required as part of their company certification to CSA Standards W47.1, W47.2 and W186.
The following three documents will be described:
(a) Welding Engineering Standards (Note: Only required for W47.2)
(b) Welding Procedure Specifications
c) Welding Procedure Data Sheets
There will be a brief description of the first two documents; however, this guide will focus on the preparation
of welding procedure data sheets.
