Overview of American Society for Nondestructive Testing (ASNT)

Founded in 1941 under the name of “The American Industrial Radium and X-Ray Society,” the American Society for Nondestructive Testing (ASNT) is the world’s largest organization for nondestructive testing professionals across various industries. ASNT is accredited as a third-party certification body by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and provides various certifications related to nondestructive examination.

ASNT provides membership that allows individuals to network with like-minded professionals and keep up with rapidly evolving NDT technology. Over 15,000 people are members of ASNT, along with over 600 corporation members, and 90 local branches in 10 countries. The organization is headquartered in Columbus, Ohio.

It is a non-profit organization that is organized into several councils, each of which meets regularly and governs a different area. These areas are: Technical and Education, Research, Section Operations, and Certification. Among the services provided by the ASNT, aside from their various certifications and standards, include sponsored meetings and conferences, a monthly and quarterly journal, and several NDT related books.

    In the petrochemical industry, we have noticed that many separate organizations are attempting to improve the quality of engineering and inspection. For example, many readers are familiar with the efforts of ASME (Post-Construction Code Requirements for Qualification & Certification of NDE Personnel), ASNT (ACCP NDT Central Certification Program), AWS/TWI (CSWIP NDT certification program), API (initiative for certification of NDT UT shear-wave weld inspectors), and NACE (Corrosion Engineering Personnel Qualification & Certification).
