ISO 17643:2005 defines eddy current testing techniques for detection of surface breaking and near surface planar discontinuities, mainly in ferritic materials (weld material, heat-affected zones, parent materials).
Eddy current testing can also be specified for use with non-ferritic materials, for example in an application standard.
The techniques can be applied to coated and uncoated objects during fabrication and in service, both onshore and offshore.
Eddy current testing can be carried out on all accessible surfaces and on welds of almost any configuration.
