ASNT Standards Development Committee (SDC) Updates

30 March 2016

The following update was submitted by the ASNT Standards Development Committee (SDC)

1) A new subcommittee was formed 

The Audit Subcommittee will be conducting audits of ISC as related to the SDC. This should make for a more fluid ANSI 5 year audit process.

2) Change in organizational structure of the ISO/TAG subcommittee

ASNT has been awarded all U.S. TAGs related to ISO TC135. These TAGs will be a standing committee of the ASNT BoD rather than a subcommittee of the SDC as was the practice.

3) Participate in American National Standards Development
ASNT’s Standards Development Committee (SDC) develops ASNT’s standards, including proposed ASNT CP-107; ASNT Standard for Performance Based Qualification and Certification of Nondestructive Testing Personnel. ANSI/ASNT CP-106: Nondestructive Testing — Qualification and Certification of Personnel, ANSI/ASNT CP-105;ASNT Standard Training Outlines of Nondestructive Testing Personnel. ANSI/ASNT CP-189: ASNT Standard for Qualification and Certification of Nondestructive Testing Personnel and ANSI/ASNT ILI-PQ: In-line Inspection Personnel Qualification and Certification.
