Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) is the national certifying agency for the Canadian NDT industry. NRCan uses the National Standards Board of Canada CAN/CGSB 48.9712 “Qualification and Certification of NDT Personnel” to issue NDT Qualifications to professionals of the NDT industry. This standard of certification complies with the (ISO) International Standard 9712:2005 and the European Standard EN 473:2000.

All NDT technicians working with GB Contract Inspection Ltd. are qualified to the CGSB standards and are also SNT-TC-1A certified. It is our goal to continually ask our employees to maintain this standard and to participate in continued learning so that we are aware of the issues that are current and relevant.

Currently visual examination certification is provided by the Canadian Welding Bureau (CWB). All work needing these requirements is performed by certified visual inspectors.
