Confused about Welding Procedures

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
UBC Section 1703 states:
"A program for this testing shall be established by the person
responsible for structural design and as shown on plans and
specifications."

My understanding is that the design engineer directs the contractor to
provide a welding program or welding procedure.

Or does having the contractor furnish the welding program fulfill the
requirement of it being "established by the person responsible for the
structural design"?

Am I reading this incorrectly?
Is there a difference between a welding program and welding procedure?
