UT-388 accetpance standard as per ASME Sec VII Div-1

Can any one suggest if i performed UT of base material (forging) as per SA 388 [straight beam technique+Angle beam technique]
what is the acceptance level

a) as per S20 of SA 788
or
b) as per Apprndix - 12 of Div-1 (I think this is applicable for welds)

dpja,
Acceptance standard is clearly defined in S20 review again.
It further supports with S20.2.8 Additional nondestructive examination or trepanning may be employed to resolve questions of interpretation of ultrasonic indications. The manufacturer shall accept responsibility for injurious conditions which will not be removed in final machining.
There is no question of your thinking on Appendix 12, it clearly states "This Appendix describes methods which shall be employed when ultrasonic examination of welds is specified in this Division."
Homework will increase awareness.

nresolved asset integrity problem in the industry. Current methods for measuring wall thickness with liftoff, without removing insulation, all have severe limitations. Eddyfi introduces Lyft — a reinvented, high-performance pulsed eddy current (PEC) solution. The patent- pending system features a state-of-the-art portable instrument, real- time C-scan imaging, fast data acquisition with grid-mapping and dynamic scanning modes, and flexibility with long cables. It can also scan through thick metal and insulation, as well as aluminum, stainless steel, and galvanized steel weather jackets. Who else but Eddyfi to reinvent an eddy current technique and redefine CUI programs. Got Lyft?
