The current membership of the board

The National Aerospace NDT Board of Australia is based on the description of a NANDTB in AS3669. It has formal recognition by the Australian Regulator, the Civil Aviation Safety Authority, and in regard to the recognition of Level 3 qualifications, it is recognised by other national regulators. The Board’s membership is drawn from various sectors of the aerospace industry which gives it a strength in diversity of opinion and expertise.

In addition to the elected members, the Civil Aviation Safety Authority has an observer on the Board. They are a valuable resource and are included in similar capacities by other NANDTBs.
