Is there a need for qualification of manufacturing NDT inspections in the pressure equipment indiustry ? : Can anyone advise me of the provisions in DIN pressure vessle codes
: (which DIN codes are applicable) to permit UT instead of RT on welds and then
: what acceptance criteria is applicable.
: i was told to look up DIN 17102 W STE 355 but it seems to be the code for making the plate!
Just these days I received the prgram of a workshop which is organised by the Technical Task Force 3 Inspection of the European Pressure Equipment Research Council (EPERC).
'Is there a need for qualification of manufacturing NDT inspections in the pressure equipment indiustry ?'
This workshop will take place on 25 and 26 November 1998 and is hosted by the Joint Research Centre of Petten, The Netherlands. At the workshop presentations will be made by some of the main actors active in the field of NDT for manufacturing of pressure equipment. The workshop will be concluded by a panel discussion.
PARTICIPATION IN THE MEETING IS FREE !!
However, the deadline for registration was November 4, 1988.
The address of the secretariat of the workshop is:

---- Extracted from the Homepage:
EPERC (European Pressure Equipment Research Council) aims at the support of the Non-Nuclear Pressure Equipment Industry, not yet grouped in a "corporation": manufacturers, users, service vendors, regulators, R&D organisations.
EPERC wishes to identify R&D priorities for the sector, to stimulate funding for these priorities, to organise co-operative projects on these priorities, to disseminate results in particular to SMEs, to reduce redundancy, to develop inputs to the codes and standards.
One of the 4 Technical task forces: TF 3: Harmonisation of Inspection Programming in Europe
Propose R&D activities aimed at harmonisation of PE inspection practices in Europe. One element of this work is the incorporation of the nuclear industrys performance demonstration practises developed under the ENIQ programme, into the non-nuclear domain.
