International NDT meeting (EFNDT)
On June 6th, there will be a meeting of the European Forum for National Aerospace NDT Boards.
The National Aerospace NDT Boards (NANDTB) have been formed in many countries around the world, but mainly in Europe, as a direct result of European Aerospace Safety Agency (EASA) regulation part 145, which mandates the implementation of European Standard EN 4179 (2005 Aerospace series - qualification and approval of personnel for non-destructive testing) by maintenance organisations subject to the regulation.
First EN4179 Transition
The first individuals have had their applications for transition per EN4179 reviewed, and as a result The Netherlands now owns a list with certified individuals. On January 25th, the first individual to receive this certificate was photographed and congratulated with the results.
Ms. Linda de Jong
employed by Standard Aero, Tilburg,
received her Level 3 certificate per EN4179 in the methods MT and PT.
The members of the NANDT-Board congratulate her with this great achievement.
Furthermore, we wish Linda, as well as the other candidates, which had their certification transitioned, success with their current & future NDT assignments.
