What is Non-Destructive Testing Oversight?

Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) oversight in aviation involves the monitoring and regulation of inspection and testing techniques used to assess the structural integrity and reliability of aircraft components without causing damage. It focuses on ensuring that NDT processes and personnel adhere to established standards and procedures to maintain the highest level of safety and reliability. NDT oversight includes the certification and qualification of NDT personnel, the approval and oversight of NDT organisations, and the verification of compliance with applicable regulations and industry best practices. By conducting regular inspections, audits, and assessments, aviation authorities can verify the competency and proficiency of NDT technicians, ensure the reliability of inspection equipment, and promote consistent and accurate NDT practices. NDT oversight plays a critical role in maintaining the airworthiness of aircraft, preventing structural failures, and safeguarding the well-being of passengers and crew.
