This International Standard describes the qualification and certification of personnel engaged in non-destructive testing (NDT) of seamless and welded steel tubes, including flat products used in the manufacture of welded tubes, for pressure purposes.
It specifies the training, qualification and certification requirements for three levels of NDT personnel competence to execute specific tasks in the NDT of seamless and welded steel tubes, including the weld seam, and flat products used in the manufacture of welded tubes.
This International Standard permits both employer and external/central qualification and certification of NDT personnel as parallel options in the qualification/certif
This International Standard is intended to apply to NDT personnel performing the inspection of seamless and welded tubes, including the weld seam, and flat products used in the manufacture of welded tubes, using any of the following NDT methods:
a) eddy current (ET);
b) flux leakage (FT);
c) liquid penetrant (PT);
d) magnetic particle (MT);
e) radiographic (FIT);
f) ultrasonic (UT).
