24 May 2023
(Columbus, OH) The American Society for Nondestructive Testing (ASNT) is proud to announce that Atlas Evaluation and Inspection Services (AEIS) has earned ASNT’s Employer-Based Certification (EBC) Audit Program accreditation. The accreditation ensures nondestructive testing (NDT) personnel certification compliance and proper oversight of employer-based NDT certification programs.
“We are thrilled that AEIS has earned ASNT's EBC Audit Program accreditation," said Brian Frye, ASNT ISQ Program Manager. "Organizations who earn EBC accreditation demonstrate that they have successfully established and upheld an employer-based certification program."
The EBC program provides the NDT industry with a registry program that ensures NDT service providers and inspection agencies meet the minimum compliance with either ASNT Recommended Practice No. SNT-TC-1A or ANSI/ASNT CP-189 through the employer’s written practice.
“AEIS provides testing, inspection, and certifications on Infrastructure projects in the New York Metro area, “said Nagesh Goel, President and Co-founder of AEIS. “Nondestructive testing has been core to our business, and since its inception twelve years ago, we have put a very rigorous NDT program in place to ensure that the projects that we help build are safe and meet quality standards. We are proud to have earned ASNT’s Employer-Based Certification program accreditation. This important credential demonstrates to our clients, regulatory bodies, and other stakeholders that our company has a well-established and rigorous certification program for its NDT personnel.”
ASNT’s EBC Audit program establishes a comprehensive registry of NDT service providers. These providers undergo a thorough assessment by ASNT to ensure their compliance with the requirements set forth in SNT-TC-1A or ANSI/ASNT CP-189, or both. By participating in this program, registered organizations offer prospective and current clients the assurance that their employer-based personnel certification program(s) align with the relevant standards. This accreditation serves as a testament to the company's robust and stringent NDT personnel certification program, instilling confidence in clients, regulatory bodies, and other stakeholders. Moreover, it guarantees that NDT personnel receive proper training and possess the necessary qualifications, resulting in accident prevention, cost reduction, and improved project quality.
