Condition monitoring and diagnostics of machines -- Requirements for qualification and assessment of personnel -- Part 7: Thermography
ISO 18436-7:2008 specifies the requirements for qualification and assessment of personnel who perform machinery condition monitoring and diagnostics using infrared thermography. A certificate or declaration of conformity to ISO 18436-7:2008 will provide recognition of the qualifications and competence of individuals to perform thermal measurements and analysis for machinery condition monitoring using portable thermal imaging equipment. This procedure may not apply to specialized equipment or other specific situations. ISO 18436-7:2008 specifies a three-category classification programme.
