E = Essential Variables which must be indicated on both the WPS and recorded on the PQR. Any changes to these variables will require
requalification of WPS
S = Supplementary Essential Variables must be indicated on the WPS and Recorded on the PQR when Impact Testing is required. Changes
to these variables when Impact testing is performed require requalification of WPS. ( QW-403.6-Where notch toughnes required min. base
Metal Thk. qualified is 16mm )
N = Nonessential variables must be indicated on the WPS but when changed do not require requalification of WPS.
NOTE: WPSs are to indicate all Essential, Nonessential and Supplementary Essential variables. Do not indicate variables which are not
used as NA they are applicable and should be entered on the WPS as None or Not used.
