Abstract: The European Network for Inspection and Qualification (ENIQ) is a utility driven network dealing with the reliability and effectiveness of non-destructive testing (NDT) for nuclear power plants (NPP). ENIQ is recognised as one of the main contributors to today’s global qualification codes and guidelines for in-service inspection (ISI) and has published nearly 50 documents. Among them are the “European Methodology for Qualification of Non-Destructive Testing”, the first qualification methodology based on technical justifications, the “European Framework Document for Risk-Informed In-Service Inspection (RI-ISI)”, and various recommend practices. In addition ENIQ has carried out two pilot studies and a number of surveys. In 2012 ENIQ joined the European based R&D association on Gen II & III reactors, NUGENIA, making ENIQ its 8th technical area. Following the entry into NUGENIA, ENIQ members have re-written the ENIQ roadmap and included a number of technical challenges facing its members in the near future. ENIQ will perform projects to tackle these challenges and new recommended practices and reports are likely to evolve from these projects, which will enable ENIQ to maintain its role as one of the main contributors to today’s global qualification codes and guidelines for ISI. This paper describes the development of ENIQ since its establishment in 1992 and the technical challenges facing its members in the coming years.
