British standards for the welding and fabrication of stainless steels


The table shows both current and obsolete standards (where these may be of current interest) in the 'Status' column. 'C' is current and 'W' is withdrawn.
The 'date' is the original publication year.
Use the 'Ctrl' and 'F' keys to 'find' the standard you are looking for.

These lists cannot be guaranteed as complete and accurate by the BSSA.
In cases of doubt the catalogues maintained by the British Standards Institution should be used.
