5 General

The purpose of this document is to describe general methods of ultrasonic examination for the most

commonly used welded joints in thermoplastics. The specific requirements specified by this document cover

the equipment, preparation, performance of the examination and reporting. Methods to be used for ultrasonic

assessment of indications and acceptance criteria shall be specified.
6 Information required prior to examination
6.1 Examination procedure
The following items shall be specified:
 method for setting the reference level;
 method to be used for evaluation of indications;
 acceptance levels;
 examination level;

 manufacturing and operation stage(s) at which the examination is to be carried out;

 qualification of personnel;
 whether or not a written examination procedure is required;
 requirements for written examination procedures.
6.2 Information required by the operator

Before any examination of a welded joint can begin, the operator shall have access to the following

information:
 written examination procedure, if required (see 6.3);
 type(s) of parent material;
 joint preparation and dimensions;
---------------------- Page: 7 ----------------------
SIST EN 13100-3:2005
EN 13100-3:2004 (E)
 welding procedure or relevant information on the welding process;
 reporting requirements.
6.3 Written examination procedure

The definitions and requirements in this document will normally satisfy the need for a written examination

procedure. When this is not the case, or when the techniques described in this document are not applicable to

the welded joint to be examined, additional written examination procedures shall be used.

7 Requirements for personnel and equipment
7.1 Personnel qualifications

Personnel performing examinations in accordance with this document shall be qualified to an appropriate level

in accordance with the relevant document, e.g. EN 473.

In addition to a general knowledge of ultrasonic weld inspection, the personnel shall be aware of testing

problems specifically associated with the thermoplastic material and type of welded joints to be examined.

7.2 Equipment

Any equipment used in conjunction with this document shall comply with the requirements of EN 12668-1 to

EN 12668-3. Prior to the publication
