CM Technical Committee (CMTC)


BINDT, a major UK body in the area of condition monitoring, diagnostic and prognostic technologies, is managing the CM activity via the Condition Monitoring Technical Committee. The Committee promotes best practice and the exchange of knowledge within the condition monitoring, diagnostic and prognostic community worldwide.

The committee aims are:
  • To raise awareness of condition monitoring;
  • To promote the practical application and through BINDT, to work on international standards committees representing the UK, for example on the 'benchmark' CM standard ISO 18436;
  • To promote and encourage the education and qualification of personnel working in condition monitoring;
  • To demonstrate competence in CM through qualification by the internationally recognised professional certification scheme, PCN; and
  • To manage and organise the PCN-accredited training scheme in condition monitoring, undertaken by the four specialist working groups (vibration analysis, lubrication analysis, acoustic emission and infrared thermography) reporting to CMTC.
The CMTC is also involved in the organisation of BINDT’s Annual Condition Monitoring Conference, traditionally held each summer, which is organised in close partnership with the International Society for Condition Monitoring (ISCM) and the US Society for Machinery Failure Prevention Technology (MFPT). This combination of the efforts of these leading organisations creates one of the largest events of its kind at a truly international level.

The Committee and its activities benefit from the involvement of scientific-technical representatives of leading universities and industrial companies from more than 30 countries; all major continents are involved: Europe, Australia, North and South America, Asia and Africa.
