PCN AND ISO

Dear experts,


What is the difference between BS EN ISO9712:2012 and EN 473?

Can we use ISO9712 LEVEL II Wherever pcn was asked by recruiter?

Seenikumaran,
to answer your questions:
- In 2010 the process was started to replace EN 473:2008 by a revised version of ISO 9712:2005 as a combined EN ISO standard.
This the actual version now (EN ISO 9712 is identical to ISO 9712):
ISO 9712:2012, Non-destructive testing - Qualification and certification of NDT personnel.
By this date the European Standard EN 473 has been withdrawn.

- ISO 9712 is an International Standard only, whereas PCN is a certification scheme run by the BINDT.
More national certification schemes are based on ISO 9712.

With best regards

Next generation for Phased Array UT is here now with FMC/TFM! Have higher resolution imaging, impr
...
oved signal to noise ratio, characterize, size and analyze defects better with access to several wave mode views and save raw FMC data for higher quality analysis.  Some of the benefits are:
  • Beautiful Image! Easier to understand what you're looking at
  • Completely focused in entire image or volume
  • Much easier to define setups before inspection
  • Easier to decipher geometry echoes from real defects
  • Oriented defects (e.g. cracks) are imaged better
  • See image from different wave modes from one FMC inspection
  • FMC data can be reprocessed/analyzed without going back to the field
