The Board acknowledges the Civil Aviation Safety Authority and the Aerospace Industry for their essential support and assistance, which enables the Board to operate and to bring to you this useful site. It has a range of information to help those involved in NDT in the Australian aerospace industry.
Welcome to the website of the National Aerospace
Non Destructive Testing (NDT) Board of Australia
The Board's objectives are listed in our publications found on the site. The most fundamental of these is to work with CASA to advance and promote aircraft safety, through the correct application of NDT in aircraft maintenance. Intergral to this is the oversight and recognition of employer based qualification and examination programs which comply with applicable industry standards. The Board offers this oversight, and an interpretation guideline to help industry, training organisations and NDT technicians understand how to apply the available standards. The Board is also a reference point for the Aerospace Industry on NDT matters, and its membership's wide expertise makes it well placed to do this.
