The British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing (BINDT) has agreed a robust certification process with an EU27 Recognised Third Party Organisation for the certification of NDT personnel. This process is fully compliant with CEN/TR/15589 Route B requirements and allows BINDT/PCN to issue certification that is acceptable under the European Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) 2014/68/EU, Annex 1 § 3.1.3.

BINDT has received an appointment from LRQA-CASL, a Recognised Third-Party Organisation (RTPO) and Notified Body (NoBo No. 2893) based in Dublin, Ireland. 

To find or check your approval use this page to check any of your certification details before proceeding - use the search facility to locate them. Then click on the LRQA logo above to go to the website and search using your PCN number.
