Neutron radiography emerged from the laboratory into an NDT environment that demanded standards for quality and performance. Many NDT areas were established before the advent of these standards. Neutron radiography, on the other hand, faced immediate pressure to produce standards in the shortest possible period of time. To further complicate matters, neutron radiography began its commercial life in high reliability aerospace applications which demanded rigid controls. In response to this obvious need the American Society for Testing and Materials has provided the formal mechanism for producing these standards since 1971 when Committee E-7 on Nondestructive Testing established section E07.01.02.
