On behalf of the NZNDTA and the organizing committee of the 12th Asia Pacific Conference on Non Destructive Testing (APCNDT) it has been our pleasure to host the NDT Event of the year for the Asian pacific Region, in our beautiful harbour city of Auckland at the Aotea Convention Centre, from November 5th to 10th 2006.
The 12th APCNDT Conference is hosted around the Asia Pacific Region, under the auspices of the International Committee On Non Destructive Testing (ICNDT) and this event provided a highly stimulating and interactive forum for NDT practitioners, from students through to pioneers to explore and discuss the latest ideas, developments, science and technology

There were a number of outstanding, world renown, invited speakers, including Dr Baldev Raj of India and Dr Shiro Kubo of Japan. There were keynote presentations and plenary sessions, poster presentations, sponsor and vendor exhibits and practical workshops, all put together to showcase the best that the Asia Pacific Region has to offer. Delegates were able to network with peers and gain insights on new knowledge and technology that will no doubt stir the innovative juices and provide motivation to translate these back into the workplace.
IAEA RCA Initiatives and Workshops on ISO9712/17024 were the structure around which this conference has developed and we can only thank all of those experts who played a part it making this happen.
We therefore take great pleasure in producing for your education, the CD of the 12th APCNDT Conference Papers.
