This Procedure establishes the requirements for performing eddy current inspection for the detection and evaluation of surface, subsurface and fastener hole flaws in metallic parts. This procedure is to be used for all eddy current flaw detection except where superseded by specific requirements of a purchase order, drawing call out or other customer requirement.
Current standards apply to either production inspection of wire, rod, bar or tubing, or in-service inspection of heat exchanger tubing. No existing standard addresses the use of eddy current inspection for the detection of surface defects on aircraft structure, machined parts or other in-service structures.
