Foreword

This document (CEN/TR 15589:2014) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 138 “Non-

destructive testing”, the secretariat of which is held by AFNOR.
This document supersedes CEN/TR 15589:2007.

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of

patent rights. CEN [and/or CENELEC] shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such

patent rights.

According to Pressure Equipment Directive 97/23/EC Article 13 section 1, it is essential that European

Union Member States and EFTA countries notify the European Commission and the other Member

States of the Third Party Organizations (RTPO) which they have recognized for the purposes of the

tasks referred to in Annex 1, section 3.1.3, namely the ‘Approval’ of NDT personnel to test permanent

joints of categories III and IV pressure Equipment and Pressure Assemblies [1].

The methodology for ‘Approval’ of NDT personnel is not specified in Directive 97/23/EC, and it was

agreed by the European Conformity Assessment Bodies Forum (CABF) that guidance was required in

order to ensure a consistent approach to the application of the Directive and the implementation of

Working Group Pressure Guideline 6/13 (17th March 2004) by Recognized Third Party Organisations

(RTPO) (see Annex C).

As a result, a Code of Practice (CoP) was developed from a draft proposed by The European

Federation for NDT. This CoP was published as CABF TRG 0034 on 24th November 2004, with a

recommendation that this document be submitted to CEN for possible development as a Technical

Report (TR) or Specification (TS).
