About

Scope

Standardization covering non-destructive testing as applied generally to constructional materials, components and assemblies, by means of:

  • glossary of terms;
  • methods of test;
  • performance specifications for testing equipment and ancillary apparatus.

Excluded:

  • quality levels;
  • specifications for electrical equipment and apparatus, which fall within the range of IEC Committees.
