Revision of A1065/A1065M-18 Standard Specification for Cold-Formed Electric-Fusion (Arc) Welded High-Strength Low–Alloy Structural Tubing in Shapes, with 50 ksi [345 MPa] Minimum Yield Point


A1065 is in need of a review in totality, which I would like to undertake. Specifically, I know of at least one aspect that I would like to propose a change to - Supplementary Requirement S2. As currently written, it would seem to suggest that when invoked, that only an "Outside agency" would be permitted to perform seam weld inspections using any other method than VT. UT testing is a common secondary inspection method specified by purchasers that could be done with resident or "in-house" NDT inspectors who are employed by the same organization that builds products that fall under this standard.
