The aim of this part of the article is to substantiate the order of procedures for determining the hygienic characteristics of welding materials in accordance with the International Standards of ISO 15011 series and, accordingly, with the harmonized National DSTU ISO 15011. The essence of the problem of correct comparative hygienic evaluation of welding materials by improving the procedure of studying indices of the levels of emissions and chemical composition of welding fumes applying the standards of DSTU ISO 15011. The features of basic procedures of hygienic evaluation of welding materials, their specifics and order, as well as the main indices used for its performance are presented. 18 Ref., 6 Tabl., 1 Fig.
Keywords: welding materials, hygienic evaluation, welding fume, threshold limit value of welding fume
