> Deciphering welding exam number

So I got an eu welding license recently after a month long course, and I cannot find anywhere on the internet what the exams number means. All I have learned is that "EN ISO 9606" is the document upon which the exam is based.
The full code is:
"EN ISO 9606-1 135-D P FW FM1 S t6 PF ml"

Can someone help figure out what does that actually mean?

EN ISO 9606-1 = the code
135 = GMAW
D P FW = plate fillet weld
FM1 = filler material group 1
S = solid wire
t6 = material thickness = 6mm
PF = position, vertical up
ml = multi layer

hope this helps.
