Welcome to the Testing and Inspection issue.

Alongside our usual news section, the feature articles this month are themed on Testing and Inspection. The role of testing and inspection in ensuring product and/or material safety, reliability, quality and regulatory compliance is explored across a number of industries in this issue, from nuclear and aerospace to food packaging and sport. A common theme is that academia and industry are continually driving R&D in this space to tackle material advances, changes in legislation, or to revisit existing materials and components with a new approach. We hope you enjoy this issue.
