American Society for Nondestructive Testing, Inc.


The American Society for Nondestructive Testing, Inc. (ASNT) is the world's largest technical society for nondestructive testing (NDT) professionals. Through our organization and membership, we provide a forum for exchange of NDT technical information; NDT educational materials and programs; and standards and services for the qualification and certification of NDT personnel. ASNT promotes the discipline of NDT as a profession and facilitates NDT research and technology applications.

ASNT was founded in 1941 (under the name of The American Industrial Radium and X-Ray Society) and currently boasts a membership of more than 15,000 including over 600 Corporate Partner affiliated companies. The Society is structured into local Sections (or chapters) throughout the world. There are over 90 chartered local Sections in over 10 countries. Our membership represents a wide cross-section of NDT practitioners working in manufacturing, construction, education, research, consulting, services, and the military.

ASNT is a nonprofit corporation governed by a board of directors and national officers. The Society is organized into councils which govern issues related to 1) Technical and Education, 2) Research, 3) Section Operations and 4) Certification. These councils meet regularly to achieve the goals and objectives of the overall organization. Day to day operations and activities are managed by the ASNT International Service Center staff in Columbus, Ohio.

In terms of specific activities, ASNT is the world leader in organizing and sponsoring conferences and meetings pertaining to NDT. Our Fall and Spring Conferences alone attract over 2,000 participants. The Society also maintains an extensive publications operation which produces and distributes NDT related books, standards, technical journals, and training materials.
