Continued airworthiness nondestructive testing means such testing specified by the aircraft, engine or propeller manufacturer in accordance with the maintenance data as specified in 145.A.45 for in service aircraft/aircraft components for the purpose of determining the continued fitness of the product to operate safely.
The nondestructive testing functions are carried out by appropriately qualified Level 1, 2 or 3 personnel as defined by the European Standard EN 4179. This European Standard (EN 4179) establishes the minimum requirements for the qualification and certification of personnel performing nondestructive testing (NDT) in the aerospace manufacturing, service, maintenance and overhaul industries.
Any maintenance organization approved under Part-145 that carries out NDT shall assign Responsible Level 3 to carry out NDT Personnel Qualification and Certification activities. Responsible Level 3 carries out related duties on behalf of employer.
If an organization doesn’t have a Responsible Level 3, these duties can be supplied by another approved outside agency. An outside agency may qualify, but not certify personnel. In all circumstances, the certification responsibility belongs to employer.
