Not acceptable Not acceptable Not acceptable Not acceptable Maximum depth 1 mm or 0,2 x t, whichever is less. Not acceptable Maximum cumulative length, 38 mm for each 150 mm weld length. Maximum depth 1 mm or t/4, whichever is less. Maximum depth 0,3 mm. Maximum length of individual flaw is t/2. Maximum length of individual flaw is Maximum accumulated length in any 300 mm of t/2. Maximum accumulated length in weld is equal to t. any 300 mm of weld is equal to t.
