Russion ATO certification
Recently, a Russian training center reached out to the Netherlands NDT Board.
The training center was approved by the German board BDLI as an supplier of NDT personnel training in accordance to EN 4179. The German Board decided to stop the practice with approval of foreign organizations, so the Russian training center applied for approval by the NANDTB.
The IL&T responded positive to this request, as long as the NANDTB's admission and enforcement procedure are followed. As we speak, we are in the midst of the process to certify the Russian training center as an ATO.
