Established in 1995, Lavender International’s Outside Agency Level 3 Services department has been working as the responsible NDT Level 3 for companies in a wide range of sectors, with a particular focus on the aerospace sector since the Nadcap process was first introduced for special processes in the UK.
Accredited by BINDT and recognised by the UK NANDT board, the department consists of highly experienced consultants who have over 200 years’ combined experience in the NDT industry. The team are qualified to ASNT, PCN, NAS410, EN4179; and are approved by prime contractors such as Rolls-Royce, Honeywell, Boeing, Airbus, BAE Systems and Bombardier Aerospace.
Having a responsible Level 3 consultant ensures that your company’s NDT operates efficiently and in compliance with industry standards by reviewing NDT requirements, auditing the facility, conducting annual performance reviews of NDT personnel, and developing techniques and procedures. The extensive range of expertise across our team allows us to assign a consultant most suited to our customers’ needs based on their qualifications and skill set; which we believe is key in delivering expert advice and support.
“The benefits of having a nominated Level 3 consultant ensures a bespoke service tailored to the specific requirements of your organisation. Providing the option of a secondary signatory for your approvals means that we can provide you with access to a Level 3 consultant throughout the year without any disruption to production.” – Andrew Young, Head of the Outside Agency department at Lavender International.
Whether it’s conducting internal audits and reviews, acting as a responsible Level 3 consultant or resolving NDT issues, we can ensure cost effective solutions across the spectrum of NDT requirements to help our clients go further.
