Personal stamp of NDT operator

Please, tell me-where I can find the requirements to a personal stamp of NDT operator ?

I need to order my personal stamp of NDT operator to put it in the records. Usually I put in records only my signatory, but now I got a requirement from customers to put in addition my personal stamp.

Should I register my personal stamp ? Where I should I register my personal stamp ?

Thanks for your help.

Re: Personal stamp of NDT operator
G'Day Dmitri

I know of no standard that requires NDT operator stamps or requirements for them.

Some clients I guess like them as I have had to make them up over the years and stamp pretty colours over the reports but it is their preference not a standard requirement.

Welding inspectors, both AWS and CSWIP get stamps but NDT and API don't.

It would be good to have actual accreditation stamps but for some reason they don't exist.

I think the sweeping statement that NDT operators do not have personal stamps in quite incorrect. PCN have issued stamps for each discipline held for a lot of years now. Whether it be level 1,2 or 3 Ultrasonic inspection or Dye Penetrant inspection. The stamps which are issued are quite clear as to the operators level of qualification, method, name of the operator and PCN number.

The PCN ones are they issued at the time of certification or are they an optional extra?

Curious as I have had numerous PCN certified technicians in SE Asia whom I have had certified and assisted in recertification but I have never seen a stamp issued to them. Everything does run a bit different out here though so anything is possible.

Re: Personal stamp of NDT operator
Mike,
PCN stamps of operator qualification have been available for as long as PCN has been established. Any operator qualified under the PCN scheme can obtain a stamp or a number of stamps depending on his / her qualifications.----------- Start Original Message -----------

Re: Personal stamp of NDT operator

From the rules

"7.5. The PCN logo or any reference to PCN shall not be used in such a way as to imply that PCN accepts any responsibility for the accuracy of any tests conducted by any certificated personnel or organisation. This precludes the use of rubber stamps bearing the PCN logo."

Full document

http://www.bindt.org/Mk1Site/PCN.pdfs/PSL31.pdf

this would imply to me that there are no official PCN stamps,(I've certainly never seen one.) Presumably if you get an unofficial one made up, not using the logo, thats probably OK.

Suggest you discuss it with John...

ASNT does not make these available, however the
in house company QC 1 Paln allows the level three certifier to provide a designated stamp number issued by the company L III. If the person leaves the company, the stamp stays with the company.
I used to used a steel inspection stamp which was used for identifiucation of welders test coupons and when I worked for the TEXAs Department of Highways and Public Transportation and was allowed to steel stencil stamp joint fitups, welders for test coupons to send to testing labs for tracibility for inspectors duties and responsibilities. most NDT disciplines require eye examination (and color examinatons, for PT examinations) once yearly and a Specfic, general written examination testing every three years before one is recertifiable.

Re: Personal stamp of NDT operator
As we work for Aerospace industry having a stamp is not mandatory to any of our customers. We do use stamps for NDT level II personel and these are circles that contain the technique somebody is qualified for like RT ; PT ; ET or UT and the inspectors number. Being NADCAP certified this system is acceptable for all major OEM's like Rolls Royce, GE, Honeywell, Pratt and Whitney and Siemens. You just need to write a good procedure how you handle these stamps and registrate them.
