This Standard includes both performance-based and prescriptive requirements to be used for an ASME Nondestructive Examination (NDE) and Quality Control (QC) Central Qualification and Certification Program that applies to NDE personnel and QC inspection person- nel.  The requirements are based on a systematic approach to training(SAT) process thatinte- grates the development of job task analyses (JTAs) and body of knowledge (BoK) requirements. (c) This Standard is applied by a third-party certifica- tion organization, which is referred to within this Stan- dard as a certification body (CB). (d) This Standard classifies CB-certified individuals as Level I, Level II, or Level III. (e) Mandatory Appendices I and II include require- ments specific to the nuclear sector and the boiler and pressure vessel and piping (BPVP) industry sectors, respectively. Mandatory Appendix III includes require- ments specific to the qualification and certification of nondestructive testing personnel to ISO 9712. 1-1.2 Applicability This Standard is applicable to any industry or industry sector that performs industry sector activities such as manufacturing, fabrication, construction, installation, maintenance, preservice inspection (PSI), and inservice inspection (ISI) that require NDE or QC inspections to be performed by qualified and certified NDE and QC inspection personnel. Far Vision Acuity. Far vision acuity testing is required only when specified by the applicable SIS. (3) Color Differentiation/Contrast. Personnel shall demonstrate the capability to distinguish the colors ap- plicable to the test methods for which certified and to differentiate contrast between these colors. Accepted examination types include H-R-R Pseudoisochromatic, Ishihara, Dvorine, and Farnsworth. Equivalent examina- tions may be performed when equivalency by a qualified and licensed medical professional has been determined. Any limitation in color perception shall be evaluated in accordance with the employer’s eye examination program by a qualified individual. Limitations shall be documented on the candidate’s eye examination docu- ments. (4) Vision Correction. When vision correction is nec- essary to pass the visual acuity examinations, the same vision correction device shall be worn during all NDE and QC inspections. Candidates using different correction devices, such as eye lenses and contactlenses, duringNDE and QC inspections shall complete a visual acuity exam- ination for each correction device.
false call: reporting a defect when none exists. flaw: an imperfection or unintentional discontinuity detected by NDE or QC inspection. grading unit: a section ofa testsample. A grading unitcan be of unequal length and spacing and either with or without relevant conditions or flaws. industry: a distinct group of productive or profit-making enterprises that produces or supplies goods or services (e.g., the aircraft industry, the pipeline industry, the auto- motive industry, and the energy industry). inspection:the observationofanyoperationperformedon materials, components, or both to determine their accept- ability in accordance with given criteria. instructor: an individual who teaches, trains, or educates NDE or QC inspection personnel. job task analysis (JTA): the systematic process of identi- fying the contentofa job, including the activities involved and the knowledge and skills required to perform the work. nondestructive examination (NDE): the development and application ofnonintrusive methods to examine materials or components or both, in ways that do not impair future usefulness and serviceability in order to detect, locate, measure, interpret, and evaluate flaws or other defined attributes. NDEmethod:one ofthedisciplines ofNDE. Alloranyofthe NDE methods listed below are addressed within ASME Codes and Standards and as applicable may be addressed within the requirements ofthis Standard.SISactivityrequirements:requirementsinthis Standardor those that are defined in a code, standard, specification, procedure, or instruction thatare used to perform the SIS activity. These requirements shall apply to a particular area in a specific industry sector or technology where using NDE or QC methods that may require specific skills, knowledge, equipment, or training.
