A key item for hazardous industries to understand is that while non-destructive examination (NDE) is a useful tool in the evaluation of continuing Fitness For Service (FFS), it must be used appropriately. This requires an understanding of the limitations of the techniques used, especially when dealing with geometries, environments, materials and access conditions which differ from previously validated applications.

This free Industry Information Sheet provides information that may be considered helpful in evaluating the selection of NDE techniques for specific applications to assess the FFS of industrial assets and lists some relevant (non-exhaustive) source material which may provide further information in this area.
