    Nondestructive testing (NDT) constitutes an important part of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code. Section V deals exclusively with nondestructive examination (NDE). This paper is a general description of all NDE methods referenced in the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, the origin of specific standards documented in other societies, adaptation, and modification of these standards to meet ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code requirements, and selection of acceptance criteria by other sections of this Code. The mechanism for implementing revisions in order to keep abreast of technological advances is described briefly and assessed.
