We inform about the certification bodies for NDT staff
After obtaining an approved degree, as well as proof of experience, training and examination according to the requirements of EN ISO 9712 and Nordtest Doc Gen 010, you can obtain a certificate issued by a certification body.
NDT Training Center is one of SWEDAC approved certification bodies. The certification activity is an independent part of the company directly under the company’s board, and consists of certification officers and those specially authorized by the Certification Board to carry out certification.
Application for certification
After passing the examination, and when all the criteria are met, an “application for certification” must be filled in to obtain a certificate issued. During 2014, the requirements for verification have been strengthened somewhat. Clearer requirements regarding experience and qualifications for the method, level, affected sectors and PED are now demanded. The application form must clearly state the qualifications stated above. If a certificate is missing, no certificate can be issued by the certification body. The same requirements apply to 5-year renewal and 10-year re-certification.
Board of Directors
The company’s board consists of 1 member from the respective owners. The Board is chaired by a chairman and the company’s CEO is a secretary.
The Board has delegated certification questions to a certification council. The Certification council consists of the NDT Training Center Certification Officer and the representative of the owners. Other members shall consist of representatives of control companies or stakeholders of the certification activities outside the ownership group and shall represent at least 50% of the members of the Council.
