Abstract: The European Network for Inspection and Qualification (ENIQ) is a network dealing with the reliability and effectiveness of non-destructive testing (NDT) for nuclear power plants (NPP). ENIQ is driven by European nuclear utilities and is working mainly in the areas of qualification of NDT systems and risk-informed in-service inspection (RI-ISI). Since its establishment in 1992 ENIQ has performed two pilot studies and has issued nearly 50 documents making it one of the main contributors to today’s global qualification guidelines for in-service inspection (ISI). In the last two years the network saw a number of changes. In 2012 ENIQ entered the newly established international R&D association on Gen II / III reactors NUGENIA as its 8th technical area (out of eight). Following the integration into NUGENIA ENIQ members rewrote the ENIQ roadmap and included a number of challenges facing its members in the next couple of years. These challenges will result into new projects in the coming years and some of them are currently under preparation. Also a new ENIQ task group was established recently, the Task Group for Inspection Qualification Bodies (TGIQB). It should serve as an exchange forum for IQBs. This paper describes the recent development, current activities and future trends of ENIQ.
