CommentDocument that has been qualified and provides the required variables of the welding procedure.
NORSOK Z-001 rationaleProvide clear specification to welder to ensure repeatability of acceptable results.
NORSOK Z-001 extended definitionA Welding Procedure or Welding Procedure Specification (WPS) is generic information which is a written instruction that specifies materials, consumables and edge preparations for a given joint. It lists the pre- and post-weld operations including heat treatments; machining, grinding and dressing of the weld; details the welding variables and the run sequence; and may specify the acceptance criteria and inspection methods.

The purpose of the WPS is to ensure that acceptance criteria can be met consistently, including mechanical properties and defect levels. It is also useful in enforcing quality control procedures, in standardising on welding methods, production times and costs and in controlling production schedules. Its prime purpose, however, is to give the welder clear, unequivocal nstructions on howa weld is to be made.
