ASME – Certificate of Competence

Provided that you perform MT – Magnetic Particle Examination and/or PT – Penetrant Examination at your company „only“, the ASME Code offers to simplify the certification of NDE-Personnel.

In most cases, the complete certification of the MT- & PT-Examiners could be done without fulfilling the requirements of SNT-TC-1A.

The ASME Code Section VIII, Div. 1, Appendix 6 and 8 and also ASME Code Section I, Appendix A-260 and A-270 offers that possibility of simplifying the certification.

We are happy to assist you here with the following service:

  • Preparing of a written procedure regarding the certification of NDE-Personnel according to ASME VIII, Div. 1, App. 6 and 8 or ASME I, App. A-260 and A-270
  • Preparing of the necessary form sheets
  • Training of NDE-Personnel
  • Preparing of MT-/PT-Procedure (Test Instruction) – if necessary

The formal requirements for simplified certification will be described in a written procedure in which the following fundamentals may be used:

  • based on existing EN 473 / ISO 9712 Certificates
  • based on training and instruction of the NDE-Personnel at your location
  • Evidence of valid visual examination
