hello,

European Standards (EN) are published in different languages with the same content. Usually the standards committees (TC) work with an English version. The date of release by the CEN/TC is part of standards number, here it is EN 4179:2009.
By BSI the UK version (BS EN) was published on 2010-01-31.
Translations into French (NF EN), into German (DIN EN) or Spanish (UNE EN) of course take some time, so these versions are published a little bit later than the English version.
The Spanish version was published on 2010-05-19 (UNE EN 4179).
But the content is always the same, here EN 4179:2009: Aerospace series. Qualification and approval of personnel for non-destructive testing.

Best regards

Why can,t revisions simply have a revision number? It is a simple and easy way of eliminating these sorts of problems!

Mr. Wallace, I suspect that the REV # system/convention is looked upon as a United States method. Thus, it is looked down upon in the EU countries.

Hi,

i'm certified with two EN 4179 ET and PT, but the EN certificate was delivered to the company i work with. when i demanded a copy or a copy of the originals they refused saying its a company privilege. now i have a new job contract with another company, so i resigned but still they refused to deliver my EN certificates. please advise what shall i do or who shall i contact (agencies like BINDT or EASA etc..).

Regards,
Thanks

Nigel: Most likely . . "and your kettle is MUCH blacker than my pot!"

Riham: That sometimes happens in the USA also. Nothing you can do, if the training and test fees were paid for by the company, not you. You will NEVER get copies of your cert's after you turn in your resignation. Always ask for a copy when they first arrive.

Riham....please ask your employer to read the EN4179. In particular, section "Record availability" which gives you the right to get all your records (except the exams) upon request or transfer to another employer. If he refuses, get a lawyer and sue for damage and missed job opportunities....
