Overview of ASTM E-7 Nondestructive Testing Standards


The American Society for Testing and Materials Committee E-7 has developed and implemented nondestructive testing standards for the NDT industry for well over 50 years. Today there are more than 125 ASTM NDT standards available covering all major nondestructive testing disciplines with several more under development. The work of Committee E-7 continues in the 1990s as we strive to respond to the ever-growing needs of the NDT industry to establish new standards and improve on existing documents.

This publication focuses on the realization that a myriad of NDT standards exist, that they originate in several organizations worldwide, and that there is a serious need for improved global standardization. It is a goal of Committee E-7 to gain a better understanding of worldwide NDT standards needs and to establish better liaison and cooperation with these other organizations so that we can better respond to the needs.
