Comments: 1) CEN/TC17 Resolurion 12 (Paris, 2008) requests ISO/TC 67 SC2 chair to make sure that ISO/TC 67 SC2 WG8 will conduct its task to harmonize pipeline welding standards, specifically EN 12732 and related documents.
2) CEN/TC234, considering the CEN/TC 234 WG 3 proposal (CEN/TC 234 Doc N 300 LL) to split EN 12732 "Welding" into separate parts for transmission and distribution during the current revision process, asks the Convenors of all relevant CEN/TC 234 WGs to evaluate the consequences of the split of the document with regard to the scopes of the CEN/TC 234 WGs they convene. They are requested to inform the CEN/TC 234 Secretariat about their position, after consultation of the WG members, by 2008-09-15. (CEN/TC234 Resolution 13/2008).
3) Revised as EN 12732:2013.
