This guide establishes areas for review and provides a survey form that can be used in determining the competence of a nondestructive testing agency.
Criteria from Practices E543, E1212, and ASNT SNT-TC-1A, ANSI/ASNT CP-189, and NAS-410, were used in the preparation of this guide.
Areas for review should include, but are not limited to, the following: description of the agency, its facilities and organization; documentation of policies or practices, or both, including a) contract review, b) equipment calibration, and c) personnel qualifications.
The use of SI or inch-pound units, or combinations thereof, will be the responsibility of the technical committee whose standards are referred to in this standard.
