This paper discusses the non destructive testing (NDT) of unfired pressure vessels made of ductile and tough steels, as contained in Part 5 of the European standard EN 13445:2002. The concept and use of testing groups along with “satisfactory experience” in welding are presented. Also the background and rationale for the determination of standards used for NDT methods, characterisation and acceptance criteria are discussed in detail. Benefits for the pressure equipment industry are emphasised.
