Security of Industrial Radiography Sources: A WINS International Best Practice Guide

 
The use of radioactive sources to inspect materials for hidden flaws is a valuable commercial assessment tool. Thousands of these sources are in use at any time all over the world. We know that the loss and theft of these high activity sources are a fairly common occurrence. If they are used maliciously, they have the potential to significantly harm individuals and the environment. Therefore, their security should be of great concern to users, regulators and law enforcement officials. This WINS International Best Practice Guide explains how your organisation can help to reduce the risk of theft of your industrial radiography sources and enhance their security worldwide.

ICNDT was pleased to work with The World Institute for Nuclear Security (WINS) on the development of this guide.

Updated Guide to Qualification and Certification

The competence of those carrying out NDT is an essential pre-requisite for the achievement of quality and reliability. Qualification and Certification of NDT personnel in accordance with International Standards such as ISO 9712 (Non-destructive testing – Qualification and certification of personnel) and aligned standards helps to ensure that people are competent and assists global business and safety standards.

The ICNDT, with a track record of 45 years in international co-operation in NDT, is dedicated to supporting best practice in the implementation of these standards and to this end has published its 'Guide and recommendations for qualification and certification of NDT personnel according to ISO 9712'.

The Guide was updated after the ICNDT meetings held at the World Conference on NDT in Durban, South Africa in April 2012.

Successful World Conference held in Durban

The 18th World Conference on Non-Destructive Testing (WCNDT) was among the most successful ever!

On behalf of ICNDT, its Members and theattendees at the conference and exhibition I wish to thank Manfred Johannes, the World Conference President and his team of “SAINTS”.

Special mention is due to Professor Arthur Every (who organised a superb technical programme, notable for its keynote lectures and invited speakers) and Butch Davies (who recruited exhibitors and sponsors). And a very special mention is due for of Giuseppe Nardoni, former Chairman of ICNDT, who facilitated the presence of Nobel Prize winner Sir Harold Kroto.

Alongside the conference, ICNDT organised its business meetings, including the General Assembly. I was pleased to be asked to serve a second term as Chairman and in my support the General Assembly elected an excellent team of officers and chairs for our Committees and Working Groups. BINDT, led by David Gilbert,will continue to provide our Secretariat.

We are grateful to David Barnett and Wayne Holliday who stood down after four years service and welcome Sajeesh Babu, Younho Cho and Sharon Bond to the Executive Committee. The Korean Society for NDT was elected to host the 20th WCNDT in 2020.

During the conference ICNDT participated in a series of Workshops which were used to help develop ideas for our programmes for the next four years and, after approval in principle at the General Assembly, these are now being consolidated into our Strategic Plan and into Action Plans for our Working Groups.

All the best in NDT.

Mike Farley
Chairman, ICNDT
