Message from President ISNT

Dear Members,


Good morning!

I take this opportunity to convey my best wishes to all on the completion of 75 years of India’s independence!

We feel proud and happy that ISNT could also contribute and play its small part in shaping the image that India carries in today’s world; a recognized power, a recognized country, a respected country due to its advancement in various fields and areas.

I also take this opportunity to update you on the progress that ISNT has made in this year till date.

ISNT works through 7 verticals. Just to mention without any elaboration, these are (1) National Certification Board (NCB) (2) Training Management Board (TMB) (3) Seminars and Workshops (4) Marketing and Publications (5) NDE in Academia and R&D Promotion (6) International Relationship (7) Industry Interaction.

There is a sustained upward trend in the examinations conducted by NCB for IS 13805. Training Management Board (TMB) is now fully operative, with a few chapters and training organizations being in the process of authorisation. The Journal for NDT is back to its normal frequency and is being released every quarter with good support and contributions from all of you. We are ensuring a proper representation of ISNT in international forums like ICNDT and APFNDT. The chapters have swung back into action with training programs, workshops, and technical lectures becoming a regular happening. Some chapters have started interactions with educational institutes to spread and promote NDT.

After a gap of 3 years, we are now planning the Annual Conference and Exhibition (NDE 2022) in the physical form, and there is a great excitement in the air again. This will be held at Gandhinagar, Gujarat, from 24th to 26th November 2022. I request you to attend the same, and to put in good efforts in promoting and supporting it to make the event a grand success.

Needless to say, all these achievements are a result of the active support of all members and chapters.

I would like to appeal to all members to forward your ideas, suggestions and also possible contributions for moving on with time and to take ISNT to newer heights. Please feel free to contact the honorary secretary regarding this.

Jai Hind!


Diwakar Joshi

President, ISNT.
