NDT Standards from the Perspective of the Department of Defense


This presentation illustrates the interaction of the DoD non-Government Society (NGS) bodies in the area of NDT. The adoption process for NGS will be outlined including the criteria for adoption, what adoption means, and the advantages of DoD/NGS interaction.

The tasks of the DoD's Standardization Program Plan for NDT will be described along with DoD's efforts on a Joint Army, Navy, Air Force (JANNAF) NDE Subcommittee and on an international standardization group (America, Britain, Canada, and Australia) called the Quadripartite Working Group on Proofing, Inspection, and Quality Assurance.
