IMPLEMENTATION OF CAN/CGSB-48.9712-2014 / (ISO 9712:2012, IDT)
CERTIFICATIONS DUE FOR RECERTIFICATION WITHIN THE TRANSITION PERIOD
Recertification due dates are fast approaching, with some certificate holders requiring recertification for one or more of their NDT certifications as early as January 15, 2020. Certificate holders who do not successfully complete the required recertification examination(s) by the date that their method/sector-specific recertification is due will:
- no longer hold valid certification
- not be eligible for certification renewal
To avoid processing and examination scheduling delays, and to avoid decertification, the NRCan NDTCB recommends applying for your recertification(s) as soon as possible if one or more of your certifications are due for recertification in 2020, 2021, or 2022 and are within the recertification transition period.
If you apply for your renewal(s) before you complete your recertification examination(s), the NRCan NDTCB will process your application (including fees), but will not renew your certification(s) until you have passed your recertification exam(s). Please note that payment of fees does not complete or guarantee the renewal and recertification processes. Renewal and recertification fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.
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.
It is recommended that employers and customers verify the claimed certifications of their ndt personnel.
