The International Atomic Energy Agency is the world’s central intergovernmental forum for scientific and technical cooperation in the field of nuclear power. It is committed to the safe, secure and peaceful use of nuclear science and technology, thus contributing to world peace and security as well as to the goals of the United Nations for sustainable development (source: IAEA.org).
The NDT laboratory works globally as an expert for the IAEA in the field of non-destructive testing in construction. In addition to training courses for representatives of the IAEA, the NDT laboratory is working on an international syllabus for NDT construction training. Furthermore, the NDT laboratory travels for the IAEA after disasters such as earthquakes or explosions in conflict areas to make an initial assessment on site and develop long-term strategies. In addition to operations in earthquake-prone areas in Albania, an operation in Beirut is planned for the near future.
