Which person or event has made the single biggest contribution to non-destructive testing and condition monitoring? That s the question which the British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing (BINDT) is asking practitioners in the run-up to its 50th anniversary celebrations later this year.

The institute is inviting NDT professionals from around the world to nominate the characters and the events that have had the greatest influence on the industry s development. They will be commemorated in a hall of fame at Materials Testing 2011, the bi-annual exhibition, which takes place this year on 13-15 September in Telford, UK. To enter, you should name

a person (living or dead), an event, or both, along with a brief explanation as to what you believe they contributed to the industry and why it was so important. BINDT is also keen to receive memoirs and photos relating to the industry to be part of a display telling the story of NDT through the years.

Send your contributions to joy@lavender-ndt.com - all comments will be collated and the institute will set up a panel to discuss the contributions. A special award will also be made by the BINDT president-elect Steve Lavender at the 50th annual dinner which is part of the annual conference running alongside the exhibition.

John Hansen, chairman of the Materials Testing organising committee, said: Although it plays such a critical role in industry, NDT remains a relatively new industry with many of the key developments having taken place within living memory. We d like practitioners views on what they believe have been the key influences which have shaped the industry both people and events so we can commemorate these and capture them for posterity.

Materials Testing 2011 is free of charge for visitors and will feature over 50 exhibitors from around the world along with a programme of talks and seminars. The show, which takes place once every two years, is recognised as one of the most comprehensive international exhibitions in NDT and related disciplines. The venue - the International Centre in Telford, in the West Midlands - is less than one-and-a-half hours from three international airports and only five minutes from rail and motorway networks.
