NDT Qualification and Certification

Nationally recognized

ASNT CP-189 was approved by the ASNT Board of Directors in January 1989 as a standard for the qualification and certification of NDT personnel.

ASNT obtained ANSI accreditation to process this document through a consensus balloting process that would recognize ASNT CP-189 as a national standard. The first successful consensus document became the ANSI/ASNT CP-189-1996 followed by ANSI/ASNT CP-189-2001, ANSI/ASNT CP-189-2006, ANSI/ASNT CP-189-2011, ANSI/ASNT CP-189-2016 and ANSI/ASNT CP-189-2020 (current revision).
