Filler metal and welding procedure guidelines are recommended for the applicable base metals, which are limited to carbon and low-alloy steels. Allowable unit stresses are provided for weld metal and base metal for various cyclically loaded joint designs. When AWS standards are either incorporated in, or made part of, documents that are included in federal or state laws and regulations, or the regulations of other governmental bodies, their provisions carry the full legal authority of the statute.
In such cases, any changes in those AWS standards must be approved by the governmental body having statutory jurisdiction before they can become a part of those laws and regulations. In all cases, these standards carry the full legal authority of the contract or other document that invokes the AWS standards.
Where this contractual relationship exists, changes in or deviations from requirements of an AWS standard must be by agreement between the contracting parties.
