Document Revised: September 22, 2010 Page 1 of 2

To apply for A2LA accreditation under the Nondestructive field of testing, each applicant is required to identify the test type/test technology and associated test method(s) for which accreditation is sought on table-A below. In addition, please identify the types of products, materials, and/or structures that your laboratory tests on table-B below. This will ensure that an assessors technical expertise is correctly matched to the testing that your laboratory performs and enables A2LA staff to generate the desired draft Scope of Accreditation. Refer to the example proposed scope of accreditation (0000.01) on the next page for reference when entering the required information in tables A and B. Submission via electronic means is preferred. Note: Most ASTM standards listed above can be found in Volume 03.03 on Nondestructive Testing. Table-A (Example) Test Type/Technology: Radiography testing * (X-Ray and Gamma) Penetrant Examination* Magnetic Particle Examination * Test Method: ASTM E94, E1032 AWS D1.1, 1.2, 1.5 ASTM E709, E1444; ASME Section V Art. 7, Section VIII, B31.1

* This laboratory meets A2LA R104 General Requirements: Accreditation of Field Testing and Field Calibration Laboratories for these tests. Please attach sheet(s) for additional tests Table-B (Example) Types of products, materials, and/or structures that the laboratory tests: Aircraft components, Automotive components, Coatings/Platings, Fasteners, Metals and Alloys, Pipes, Hoses, Valves and Fittings, Pressure Vessels
