EFNDT was founded as a Europe-wide partnership to promote NDT and related fields for the benefit of industry, the

organizations involved in NDT and related topics in Europe, and is dedicated to public safety in our technological
To complete its mission, EFNDT has developed a sound strategic plan, which helps in showing the way of the daily
activities. One of the strengths of EFNDT is in the national NDT societies. That’s why the Board of Directors of EFNDT
puts a stronger epmhasis on them to hear their voice and to broader involve them into the daily work. Working
Groups, Forums and Committees represent our strength too. Their role becomes more and more
important because they can provide forum for exhanging information in particular industrial
segments and specific application areas of NDT.
The coming 12th ECNDT in Gothenburg will offer brilliant opportunity for the national societies,
and to each friend of NDT to meet, to discuss common issues, to be familiar new development
and trends in the field of NDT and deepen friendship among the members of the whole NDT community.
On behalf of the Board of Directors of EFNDT I would like to encourage you to take part
in this remarkable event.
