The ASNT Employer-Based Certification (EBC) Program was designed to provide the NDT industry with a registry program that ensures NDT service providers and inspection agencies meet the minimum compliance with either SNT-TC-1A or CP-189 through the employer’s Written Practice.
* Applicants may request an onsite audit; however, these will be subject to additional fees to cover travel costs.

Competitive advantage – differentiate between those capable of implementing and maintaining an effective employer-based certification program as opposed to those that cannot.
Recognition – by the association that developed SNT-TC-1A and ANSI/ASNT CP-189, confirming NDT service providers or inspection agencies comply with either SNT-TC-1A or CP-189 through their company Written Practice.
Standardization – NDT certification assessments are taking place at companies with varying levels of oversight by many different companies, creating inconsistencies.Having a program managed by industry through ASNT provides the opportunity to share information for the betterment of the industry to tackle the challenges faced individually by companies and working collectively to standardize these challenges. Everyone faces the same challenges, why work on these issues individually?
Cost reductions – What happens when industry is involved as a collective working together through ASNT, accepting the EBC Accreditation? The potential reductions of site visits from customers, who are specifically there to review NDT personnel certification programs. A reduction in site visits, allows for the resource and time (preparation, assessment, addressing outstanding items, etc.) to be redirected within the company.
