The 64th Annual Assembly of International Institute of Welding, "a word of joining experience", was held in Chennai, (the old Madras, capital of the Indian State Tamil Nadu on the southern coast of Bengala Bay), from 17th to 22nd July 2011. It was attended by 869 experts, researchers, engineers and accompanying persons of 46 countries. IIW Working Units hold around one hundred meetings; some four hundred documents, recommendations, guidelines and draft standards were studied and discussed and 133 of them were recommended for publication or transmitted to ISO and CEN. Relevant also the meetings of IAB (International Authorization Board), the body established in the frame of IIW to manage the "International IIW Qualification, Certification and Authorization System", and of its working groups. The Assembly included also the International Conference "Global Trends in Joining, Cutting and Surfacing Technology", a number of seminars, several social events and scientific and technical visits in the city and surroundings. The Board of Directors was partially renewed (notably Dr. Luca Costa of IIS was elected as Vice President) and two new Member Countries, Kazakhstan and Peru, entered IIW, which has now 55 Members.

This paper analyzes the Part I of the Draft International Standard ISO DIS 17636:2010 (prEN 17636-1:2010), revision of the first edition ISO 17636:2003, which has been technically revised. This second edition aims to become the reference on a worldwide scale for radiographic testing, carried out on welded joints, using the conventional techniques based on traditional films. This international document also consists of a Part 2, which deals with radiographic testing on welds using modern techniques based on digital system, known asfilmless technologies; ISO DIS 17636-2 (prEN ISO 17636-2:2010) will be described in a future issue of this journal.

All activities in welding fabrication may induce exposure of all involved personnel (welders, technicians and all others working in the shop) to risk agents which are strictly related to the performed operations. The evaluation of these aspects requires an interdisciplinary approach, involving industrial hygienists, epidemiologists, chemists and welding engineers. Since its foundation, IIW(International Institute of Welding) has kept in high consideration all the matters related to health and safety, by creating the Commission VIII, where all these disciplines are well represented through the participation of the most representative experts of the different fields of knowledge. This article reports about the Commission VIII activities through an analysis of the documents discussed and emitted as "IIW Commission VIII best practices", including those recently reviewed and possibly updated.

The rapid development of electronic components requires a rapid development of electronic assembly technologies; these technologies also includes the manual soldering. The manual soldering station is the protagonist of constant technological developments that led to finding the market two different types of manual soldering stations: "resistance" or traditional manual soldering stations and frequency manual soldering stations. In parallel, the aforementioned technological developments have also affected all the ancillary equipment manual soldering stations and enabled its transformation into multifunctional stations.

The 65th Annual Assembly of International Institute of Welding, "a word of joining experience", was held in Denver (the capital of Colorado, near to the heart of the States), from 8th to 13th July 2012. It was attended by 799 experts, researchers, engineers, students and accompanying persons of 49 countries of 4 continents. IIW Working Units hold around one hundred meetings; some five hundred documents, recommendations, guidelines and draft standards were presented studied and discussed and 143 of them were recommended for publication or transmitted to ISO and CEN for publication as standards or further action. Relevant also the meetings of IAB (International Authorization Board), the body established in the frame of IIW to manage the "International IIW Qualification, Certification and Authorization System", and of its operational units. The Assembly included also the International Conference "Welding for Repair and Life Extension of Plants and Infrastructure ", a number of seminars, several social events and scientific and technical visits in the city and surroundings. The Board of Directors was partially renewed and a new Member Country, Macedonia, entered IIW, which has now 56 Members. Source
