Changing aross Section IX
• Until Ed. 2017: ASME IX required Procedure and Performance Qualification records shall be available, upon
request, for review by the Authorized Inspector (AI).
• Now: Each organization must ensure the availability of Procedure and Performance Qualification Records
when required for review - the reference to AI is removed
• QC-Manuals must be revised to removed these reference to the AI
Revised Paragraphs Deleted Para.
QG-104 QW-200.1(e)
QW-200.2(e) QB-200.1(e) removed references to the “Authorized
QW-540(h) QF-201.4 Inspector” for review of procedure and
QB-200.2(e) performance qualification records

QF-201.5(e)
QG-101 in first paragraph, last sentence added clarified the need to ensure the
QG-102, second paragraph availability procedure and performance
qualification records when required for
QW-540(h) review and reference
Lloyd's Register 4
Changes of Part QG, General Requirements
QG-100(b) – revised
(b) Whenever the referencing Code, standard, or specification imposes qualification requirements different
than those given in this Section, the requirements of the referencing Code, standard, or specification shall take
precedence over the requirements of this Section.
● requirements of the Codes, standards and specifications that refer to Section IX take precedence over those
of Section IX
● this paragraph has been misinterpreted by some to require that, when a referencing code has a
requirement such as preheating P-5A materials to 200°C one has to preheat the procedure qualification test
coupon to 200°C.
● It was not the intent of the committee that the rules for construction apply to the qualification of WPSs.
Codes, however, occasionally impose additional requirements for qualification of WPSs, and those must be
followed: e.g. ASME B31.3, paragraph 331.1.1(b) requires that the PWHT specified in Table 331.1.1 be used
during procedure qualification.
● QG-100(b) has been modified to clarify that it applies only to requirements that are specifically imposed
on the qualification process.

Lloyd's Register 5
Changes of Part QG, General Requirements
QG-104 PERFORMANCE QUALIFICATION RECORD - revised
The performance qualification record documents what occurred during the production of a test coupon by a
person using one or more joining processes following an organization’s procedure specification. As a
minimum, the record shall document
● (a) the essential variables for each process used to produce the test coupon
● (b) the ranges of variables qualified as required by the applicable part (see QW-301.4, QB-301.4, and QF-
301.4)
● (c) the results of the required testing and nondestructive examinations
● (d) the identification of the procedure specification(s) followed during the test
The organization shall state on the record that the performance qualification test was conducted in
accordance with the requirements of this Section, and certify the record by a signature or other means as
described in the organization’s Quality Control System. Performance qualification records shall be available
for review.

Lloyd's Register 6
Changes of Part QG, General Requirements
QG-104 PERFORMANCE QUALIFICATION RECORD - revised
● QG-104 give now for the ranges of variables a reference e.g. for welding to QW-304.1:
● “QW-301.4 Record of Tests. The record of Welder or Welding Operator Performance Qualification (WPQ) tests shall include
the essential variables (QW-350 or QW-360), the type of test and test results, and the ranges qualified in accordance with
QW-452 for each welder and welding operator. …..”
● QW-452 includes only
─ Table QW-452.1(b): Thickness of Weld Metal Qualified
─ Table QW-452.3 : Groove-Weld Diameter Limits
─ Table QW-452.4: Small Diameter Fillet-Weld Test
─ Table QW-452.5: Fillet Weld Test
─ Table QW-452.6: Fillet Qualification by Groove-Weld Tests
● this means only thickness and diameter are required to be shown on “Range Qualified” column on the welder
qualification record
● however it is strongly recommended continue to complete the entire “Range Qualified” column since the data in that
column describes concisely for what the welder is qualified and make it easy for supervision

Lloyd's Register 7
Changes of Part QG, General Requirements
QG-106 ORGANIZATIONAL RESPONSIBILITY
First paragraph added:
Personnel performing supervisory activities specified in this Section shall
(a) be designated by the organization with responsibility for certifying qualification documents.
(b) have a satisfactory level of competence in accordance with the organization’s quality program. As a
minimum, they shall be qualified by education, experience, or training in the following areas:
(1) knowledge of the requirements of this Section for the qualification of procedures and/or joining
personnel
(2) knowledge of the organization’s quality program
(3) the scope, complexity, or special nature of the activities to which oversight is to be provided
(c) have a record, maintained by the organization, containing objective evidence of the qualifications, training,
or experience.

Lloyd's Register 8
Changes of Part QG, General Requirements
QG-106 ORGANIZATIONAL RESPONSIBILITY
● Section IX has long required that organizations provide supervision and control over welders when they
weld qualification test coupons
● Section have never been any qualification requirements for that person.
● QG-106 was therefore revised to require that individuals who provide supervision and control over the
joining of qualification coupons be qualified by education, experience or training in knowledge of Section IX
and the scope, complexity and special nature of the activities over which oversight is to be provided.
● These new requirements do not detail specifically what is required
● Each organization have to define in writing requirements as appropriate for their organization. This will be
an audit point for those renewing their ASME Certificates of Authorization after January 1, 2020. and must
be addressed in the QC-Manual.
● In the ASME Team Leaders meeting, it was agreed that personnel who are designated to certify PQR,
WPQ/WOPQ will require to be certified by the Manufacturer that they are competent (refer to QG-106(a)).
● Personnel involved in Production welding activities like Welding Foreman are exempted from the above
requirements.

Changes of Part QG, General Requirements
QG-107 OWNERSHIP TRANSFERS
When an organization or some part thereof is acquired by a new owner(s), the PQRs, procedure specifications,
and performance qualification records may remain valid for use by the new owner(s) without requalification;
and the new owner(s) PQRs, procedure specifications, and performance qualification records become valid for
use by the acquired organization, provided all of the following requirements have been met:
(a) The new owner(s) takes responsibility for the procedure specifications and performance qualification
records.
(b) The procedure specifications and performance qualification records have been revised to reflect the name
of the new owner(s) identify the name of the new owner(s) prior to use.
(c) The Quality Control System or Quality Assurance Program documents the original source of the PQRs,
procedure specifications, and performance qualification records as being from the original qualifying
organization.

QW-101 PROCEDURE SPECIFICATION
Last Paragraph added
“When a variable is outside the scope of a WPS (e.g., the variable applies to a P-Number not included on the WPS) or is
addressed by another variable (e.g., the AWS Classification specifies the filler metal product form), that variable need
not be specifically addressed on the WPS or PQRs that support the WPS.”
● QW-101 says that all the essential and nonessential variables listed in QW-250 for any welding process have to be
addressed in the WPS.
● Some have taken that requirement to mean that each variable listed in the QW-250 tables has to be individually
addressed – like a checklist.
● Clarification that such a approach is overdone.
● Typical examples:
─ QW-410.64 Use of thermal processes: applicable only for P‐No. 11A and P‐No. 11B
─ QW-410.11 Closed to out chamber: applicable only for P‐No. 51 through P‐No. 53 metals
─ QW-408.9 deletion of backing gas or a change in the nominal composition: applicable only for P ‐No. 41 through
P‐No. 49, P‐No. 10I, P‐No. 10J, P‐No.10K, P‐No. 51 through P‐No. 53, P‐No. 61 through P‐No. 62 metals

QW-405.2 was deleted
QW-405.2 was a Supplementary Essential Welding Variable until Edition 2017:
● A change from any position to the vertical position uphill progression. Vertical‐uphill
progression (e.g., 3G, 5G, or 6G position) qualifies for all positions.
● In uphill progression, a change from stringer bead to weave bead.
● This variable does not apply when a WPS is qualified with a PWHT above the upper
transformation temperature or when an austenitic material is solution annealed after welding.

● For the Processes SMAW, GMAW (including FCAW), GTAW, PAW and LLBW the welding
position and the Vertical Welding Progression are now only a Nonessential Welding
Variables (regardless of impact test requirements by the Code of Construction).
