2 Normative References The following referenced document is indispensable for the application of this document. For dated references, only the edition cited applies. For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document (including any amendments) applies. ISO 9712 1 , Non-destructive testing — Qualification and certification of personnel. 3 Terms, Definitions, and Abbreviated Terms For the purposes of this document, the following terms, definitions, and abbreviated terms apply. 3.1 Terms and Definitions 3.1.1 critical area Highly stressed region of a primary-load-carrying component as defined by the manufacturer. 3.1.2 expendable parts Parts normally used up or consumed in service. EXAMPLE Seals, gaskets, filters, packing, V-belts, covers, guards, breathers, drains, and miscellaneous hardware and fasteners. 3.1.3 inspection Comparison of equipment conformity to predetermined standards, followed by a determination of action required. 3.1.4 load test Test wherein a load is applied under controlled and monitored conditions to verify the serviceability of equipment. 3.1.5 maintenance Actions including inspection, adjustments, cleaning, lubrication, testing, and replacement of expendable parts, as necessary to maintain the serviceability of the equipment. 3.1.6 manufacturer Individual or company that makes or processes equipment or material covered by this document. 3.1.7 owner Individual, legal entity, or organization holding legal title to the equipment. 3.1.8 primary load Axial load to which the equipment is subjected in operation.
3.1.9 primary-load-carrying component Component of the equipment through which the primary load is carried. 3.1.10 remanufacture Action performed on equipment that involves a special process or re-machining. 3.1.11 repair Action performed on equipment that involves replacement of parts, other than expendable parts, but excludes remanufacture. 3.1.12 serviceability Condition of a piece of equipment at any point in time that affects the ability of the equipment to perform its function(s) as intended. 3.1.13 special process Operation that can change or affect the mechanical properties, including toughness, of the materials used in equipment. 3.1.14 testing Action carried out on a piece of equipment to ensure that it can perform a required function. 3.1.15 user Individual or company that uses equipment or material, or implements standards.
4.1.2 Procedure Development User/owner and Manufacturer Joint Procedure Development The user/owner and manufacturer should jointly develop and update inspection, maintenance, repair, and remanufacture procedures consistent with equipment application, loading, work environment, usage, and operational conditions. These factors may change as a result of new technology, product improvements, or fundamental changes in service conditions. User/owner Procedure Development If the manufacturer of the equipment no longer exists or is unable for any reason to provide suitable recommendations, the user/owner shall develop inspection, maintenance, repair, and remanufacture procedures consistent with widely-accepted industry practices. Parts and Tooling NDT, maintenance, and dismantling equipment shall be properly selected and adapted to the parts to be inspected and maintained. 4.2 Personnel Qualification 4.2.1 NDT Personnel Qualification Levels Qualification Inspectors shall be aware of the type of equipment to be evaluated and the NDT methods to apply. The users/owners shall verify that the NDT inspector has the following information: — assembly drawings and drawings identifying critical areas;
5 Inspection and Maintenance 5.1 General 5.1.1 Criteria Inspection and maintenance are closely linked. Inspection and maintenance actions may be initiated based on, but not limited to, one or more of the following criteria: — specific time intervals; — measurable wear limits; — load cycle accumulation; — non-performance of equipment; — environment; — experience (history); — regulatory requirements. 5.1.2 Safety Considerations Operators shall review safety considerations applicable to the site where the maintenance activity is performed. 5.2 Maintenance 5.2.1 General Maintenance of equipment consists of actions such as adjustments, cleaning, lubrication, and replacement of expendable parts. The complexity of these activities and the safety risks involved shall be considered in the assignment of appropriate resources such as facilities, equipment and qualified personnel. 5.2.2 Procedures In addition to the procedures developed in accordance with 4.1, the manufacturer should define any special tools, materials, measuring and inspection equipment, and personnel qualifications necessary to perform the maintenance. The manufacturer should also specify those procedures that should be performed solely by the manufacturer, either within the manufacturer’s facility or within another approved facility.
