WPSs: The NCPWB has more than 100 WPSs that have been developed and qualified in accordance with ASME code requirements.
Walter Sperko, P.E., NCPWB Technical Consultant, observed, "These WPSs would cost a contractor in excess of $500,000 to duplicate, and they are available for use without the three-to four-week lead time normally needed if a contractor were to qualify them on his own." The ready availability of these WPSs is a clear and significant benefit to the contractor and the customer.
Qualification of Welders and Welder Interchange: ASME piping codes provide for interchange of welders between NCPWB contractors.
