The general objective of this research is to develop further a European network for the coordination and management of expertise and resources in the assessment and qualification of NDE inspection techniques and procedures. The ultimate goal will be support to international codes and standards bodies, by making available the results, technical tools, expertise and performance demonstration exercises that can be sponsored and managed at the European level. The limitations and industrial framework of the project are described and the possible actions of the network are discussed. The benefits of such a system are also discussed from the following points of view: (i) industry/customers; (ii) codes and standards; (iii) members. The membership and organisation of the network are also discussed.
