Which standards should refer to when doing MT and UT

I need to make MT and UT inspection to some steel components such as hollow shaft, high strength steel bolt (about M20x100), some small steel connecting shaft (about 20mm-dia x 80mm length), lever (30mm square section x 80mm length). The inspection is for surface and sub/surface cracks and flaws.

Which BS (or EN, ISO) standards should I refer to regarding the general testing guidelines, techniques and acceptance criteria?

I know there are BS and ISO standards for MT and UT inspection of welds, but I can't find the one for inspection of non-welded general material.

-Dear,
please refer the material standard which will give you the "Inspection and testing standard for Visual, NDT, DT with procedures and acceptance creteria"

Re: Which standards should refer to when doing MT and UT
I don't know about BS Standards, but you can take a look at ASTM SE-709 for MT and ASTM SA-388 for UT. They can be found in the back of ASME Section V.

Which material standard? Do you mean the material standard published by the steel manufacturer?

Re: Which standards should refer to when doing MT and UT
Dear ,
All materials are manufacted based on a particular Country standard, Like ASTM or BS or JIS,
So ask the company for more details, like material manufactring standard ,number & Grade of the material which you are going to test.
they must have the Standard Book if not you have to get from outside to refer for testing standards

For example if you need to test ASTM A105 forging Bar , refer ASTM A105 standard which will give you all testing requirements and further refernce stadards to refer.
Hope U understand,
Regards
Arun

: Dear Friend,
In general purpose of material testing,you can use ASTM standard.But as per design code or service of equipments, you can select exact standard or specificatio.,
