NRCan National Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) Certification Body Directory of NDT Certified Personnel

Did your certification expire on December 31, 2015?

During the initial renewal process/transition period for implementation of the new standard, clients who submitted valid renewal requests prior to expiration, continued to hold valid certification until March 31, 2016. NRCan has now completed all renewal applications received to date and will continue to process renewal requests as they are submitted.

Please note: All personnel appearing on the Certified Personnel list are currently certified even though they may not have received their updated certification card from NRCan. All candidates who are due for recertification must successfully complete their recertification examination before their next NDT certification renewal date. During the transition period for the implementation of CAN/CGSB 48.9712-2014 / (ISO 9712:2012, IDT), once clients that require recertification are renewed, their certifications are valid until their next NDT certification renewal date, however their renewal is issued on a conditional basis pending the successful completion of their recertification examination process. Candidates who do not complete their recertification examination by the end of their period of validity will not have their certifications renewed past their current expiry date. Certification status of NDT certified personnel can be verified by contacting the NRCan National NDT Certification Body.

How can I find out which NDT personnel are currently certified by Natural Resources Canada (NRCan)?

You can download the list of NDT personnel who are currently certified by NRCan (PDF, 2.38 MB). The list contains personnel certified according to standard CAN/CGSB-48.9712-2014 (IDT ISO 97121:2012).

This standard offers three levels of certification in the following testing methods:

  • Industrial Radiography (RT)
  • Ultrasonics (UT)
  • Magnetic Particle (MT)
  • Liquid Penetrant (PT)
  • Eddy Current (ET)

Understanding the list of certified NDT personnel

For the UT, MT, PT, and ET methods, all certifications are in the Engineering, Materials and Components Sector. For the Industrial Radiography method:

  • E = Engineering, Materials and Components Sector
  • AS = Aerospace Sector
  • A = Light Alloy Castings and Forgings
  • W = Welds and Weldments
  • C = Heavy Metal Castings and Forgings

Certification in the A, W, and C sectors is equivalent to certification in the Engineering, Materials and Components Sector.
