> UT inspection levels / percentage of full penetration welds

Hi guys,

The company I work for has been awarded a project which contains heaps of full penetration welds. UT inspection is to conducted as per the BS EN ISO 17640 and Quality level of BS EN ISO 5817 - Level B.

I didn't find clearly what is the percentage of the inspection by considering these standards.

Having considered Level B of Quality Level, the Testing level is B also. What does B mean here?

Is there anywhere mentioning what percentage of the welds are to be inspected? Are we supposed to carry out a full 100% weld inspection (UT)?

Your assistance would be really appreciated,

What is the design / fabrication code ?
This will determine the percentage of welds requiring testing (or it will be listed in your project specification)
