Get Involved: U.S. TAG Participants Sought for ISO Technical Committee on Non-destructive Testing


The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) is seeking participants in the ANSI-accredited U.S. Technical Advisory Group (TAG) for International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Technical Committee (TC) 135 on Non-destructive testing. All U.S. stakeholder organizations in relevant fields and industries are strongly encouraged to get involved.

As the U.S. member body to ISO, ANSI accredits U.S. TAGs to develop and transmit U.S. positions on ISO technical activities. ANSI member and accredited standards developer the American Society for Nondestructive Testing (ASNT) serves as the ANSI-accredited administrator of the U.S. TAG to ISO TC 135.

The scope of the work of ISO TC 135 is standardization covering non-destructive testing as applied generally to constructional materials, components and assemblies, by means of a glossary of terms, methods of test and performance specifications for testing equipment and ancillary apparatus. (Excluded are quality levels and specifications for electrical equipment and apparatus, which fall within the range of International Electrotechnical Commission [IEC] committees.)

The U.S. TAG to ISO TC 135 is a participating member of the following active subcommittees (SC) under ISO TC 135:
  • SC 2 - Surface methods

  • SC 3 - Ultrasonic testing

  • SC 4 - Eddy current testing

  • SC 5 - Radiographic testing

  • SC 6 - Leak testing

  • SC 7 - Personnel qualification

  • SC 8 - Thermographic testing

  • SC 9 - Acoustic emission testing

Prospective U.S. TAG participants for ISO TC 135 or those seeking more information should contact U.S. TAG administrator James Bennett at [email protected] or the ANSI ISO Team at [email protected].
