Standards for Non-Destructive testing (NDT) in South Africa are issued as South African National Standards (SANS). When a need for a Standard is identified, the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS) Technical Committee 135 decides whether the standard is unique to the South African environment or whether there are internationally, readily available standards that could apply.
