Abstract: This conference, the seventh in a series on NDE in relation to structural integrity for nuclear and pressurised components, was held from 12 to 14 May 2009, in Yokohama, Japan. The scientific programme was produced by the European Commission¿s Joint Research Centre, Institute for Energy (EC-JRC/IE), the conference co-organiser. It was locally organised by Jaipeic. The first conference, under the sole responsibility of EC-JRC was held very successfully in Amsterdam, 20-22 October 1998. The second conference was locally organized by the EPRI NDE Center in New Orleans, 24-26 May 2000, the third one by Tecnatom in Seville, 14-16 November 2001, the fourth one by the British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing in London, 6-8 December 2004, the fifth by EPRI in San Diego, 10-12 May 2006 and the sixth by Marovisz in Budapest, 8-10 October 2007. The theme of this conference series is to provide the link between the information originated by NDE and the use made of this information in assessing structural integrity. In this context, there is often a need to determine NDE performance against structural integrity requirements through a process of qualification or performance demonstration. There is also a need to develop NDE to address shortcomings revealed by such performance demonstration or otherwise. Finally, the links between NDE and structural integrity require strengthening in many areas so that NDE is focussed on the components at greatest risk and provides the precise information required for assessment of integrity. These were the issues addressed by the papers selected for the conference.
