Re: FEMA Welding Requirements

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I assume that you are referring to FEMA 350 and FEMA 353.  Neither of these
documents require anything.  They are guideline documents.  However, many
jurisdictions in California accept them as meeting the test data
requirements of the 1997 UBC.  I suggest that you check with the applicable
jurisdiction for your project to clarify to what extent they expect FEMA
350 and FEMA 353 to be used.

Does anyone know if FEMA requires Continuous Inspection on all Full
Penetration Welds done in a Fabricator Shop, even if the shop is Licensed
by the County or the City?
