In discussions during the last sub-committee meeting, the question has raised concerning whether the ERW weld should be allowed to be located in one of the corners in structural tubing. This point has just been addressed in A500 on a recent ballot. The consensus is that the weld should not be allowed in the corner unless requested by the purchaser. The wording used in the recent A500 ballot should be added to A847 under Section 5.2. The Summary of Changes was updated to reflect this change .
Ballot Item Approved as A847/A847M-2014 and Pending Publication
