Development of technical regulatory legal acts in the field of NDT based on TC 10

The Technical Committee for Standardization “Technical Diagnostics and Non-Destructive Testing” (TC 10) was created by order of the State Standard of the Republic of Belarus and operates on the basis of the IAPH NAS of Belarus.
During the work of the TC, a number of standards have been developed in the field of non-destructive testing, recommendations and feedback on more than 60 standards and technical specifications. TC is formed on a voluntary basis from specialists who are authorized representatives of interested organizations.

Maintenance and repair

The laboratory provides training in the use of our products. If the customer needs, training in the use of laboratory equipment can be carried out directly at the factory. Training seminars are also held with the issuance of a certificate of training.
The laboratory carries out repairs and maintenance of portable hardness testers and thickness gauges.
An agreement is concluded during these works. After the repair, the devices undergo calibration or calibration at BelGIM.
The repair periods take from 1 day to 2 weeks, depending on the complexity of the work performed. The warranty on the work performed is from 6 months to 1 year.
