In this paper the correlation between inspection effectiveness, inspection qualification and risk informed inspection will be treated in view of harmonization of inspection of nuclear plant components. Through the different phases of the PISC programme, the necessity has been demonstrated to show the effectiveness of the inspection through a formal process of qualification in order to ensure that a certain level of effectiveness has been reached. Inspection qualification is indeed the way to quantify the capability level of inspection techniques used. The targets to be met by the inspection is information which should be obtained from risk based analyses.
