EN ISO 9712:2022 specifies requirements for the qualification and certification of personnel performing industrial non-destructive testing (NDT) using the methods listed below:

  • acoustic emission testing
  • eddy current testing
  • leak testing (hydraulic pressure tests excluded)
  • magnetic testing
  • penetrant testing
  • radiographic testing
  • strain gauge testing
  • thermographic testing
  • ultrasonic testing
  • visual testing (direct unaided visual tests and visual tests carried out during the application of another NDT method are excluded).

The system described in this standard is also applicable to other NDT methods that are part of an established NDT method if a complete certification scheme exists and the NDT method or NDT technique is covered by international, regional or national standards or the NDT method or the NDT technique has proven to be effective for the certification body.
