A vocabulary problem, in English only.

(Document updated in November 2012)

This paper, written by two French people, deals with something we feel as a problem of
vocabulary.

Depending on the documents in use, these two terms may be used as synonyms, or with different meanings, when talking about indications.

We are in the opinion that:

• Non-relevant indication means an indication that is within the criteria for acceptance. It is not necessary to record it.

• Non-significant indication means an indication which cannot be related to a discontinuity; it may be due to:
> In PT, an insufficient washing, a surface contamination, etc.
> In MT, a geometric reason (a sharp radius), materials with different magnetic permeabilities, etc.

We would like to receive comments from our English-speaking readers on this point.
