ASTM WK75740

    Revision of E1316 - 20a Standard Terminology for Nondestructive Examinations

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: E1316 - 21c

    Developed by Subcommittee: E07.92 | Committee E07 | Contact Staff Manager




    This ballot action addresses two types of revisions. The first revision is to remove the preferred use of the term examination over inspection in the Scope and Section A. In some industries inspection is used instead of examination and these revisions allow the preferred term to be used as appropriate for each industry. The second revision incorporates some of the examples currently listed in Policy P-15 into the Scope. Recently there has been some confusion about the proper usage of the terms examination, inspection, and testing and their derivatives. Part of this confusion came from discussion about the usage of these terms in two separate locations (in E1316 and Policy P-15). Once the revisions to the E1316 scope are approved, the plan is to rescind Policy P-15.
