Welcome to EFNDT online

“A Europe-wide partnership to promote NDT and related fields for the benefit of industry, the professions, users and the wider community”

The overall mission of EFNDT is to bring together the resources of the national societies and organisations involved in NDT and related topics in Europe to create a more effective and more valuable voice for industry, the professions, users and the wider community.

EFNDT was founded in May 1998 in Copenhagen at the 7th European Conference for Non-Destructive Testing (ECNDT). 27 national NDT societies agreed to set up a powerful organisation on European level. Full membership is open to national NDT societies, one per country. Associate membership is open to all applicable organisations worldwide.

EFNDT is a non-profit association registered in Brussels.
