AN UPDATE TO THE CERTIFIED PERSONNEL LIST PUBLISHED ON JULY 4TH, 2022 MAY LIST EXPIRATION AND RECERTIFICATION DUE DATES THAT INCLUDE A TEMPORARY COVID-19 EXTENSION WHICH MAY CAUSE CONFUSION WHEN APPLYING THE COVID-19 EXTENSION POLICY. AN UPDATED LIST HAS BEEN RE-PUBLISHED LISTING ACTUAL EXPIRATION DATES.
COVID temporary accommodations and extensions
In April 2020, The NRCan NDTCB implemented temporary accommodations and extensions relating to initial certifications and renewals/recertifications for select candidates and expiry dates. Some of these extensions have already expired, with all extensions for renewal and recertification expiring by December 2024. It is the responsibility of certification candidates and certificate holders to keep track of all expiry dates and due dates and manage their applications and certifications accordingly. Please visit our NDT Certification Body COVID Program Updates page for more information.
This list of NDT personnel, currently certified by NRCan, was produced at NRCan and was accurate on the date shown. Certifications are valid until the listed expiration date. Due to COVID-19, select certificate holders have been granted temporary expiry date extensions. Please read the above notice for details.
The Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) National Non-Destructive Testing Certification Body’s (NDTCB’s) Directory of Certified Personnel lists personnel who hold the following certifications:
- Those who are X-ray fluorescence (XRF) certified analyzer operators based on ISO standard 20807 and Health Canada Safety Code 32
- Those who are certified in Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) according to the Canadian General Standards Board Standard CAN/CGSB-48.9712-2014 (ISO 9712:2012, IDT)
During the transition period for the implementation of CAN/CGSB 48.9712-2014, once clients who require recertification are renewed, their certifications are valid until their next NDT certification renewal date.
However, these renewals are issued conditionally, pending the successful completion of the recertification examination process. Candidates who do not complete their recertification examination by the end of their period of validity will not have their certifications renewed.

- A = Light Alloy Castings and Forgings
- W = Welds and Weldments
