Note 2 to entry: A inspection body is preferably compliant with EN ISO/IEC 17020 [3].

3.3
testing laboratory

laboratory which measures, tests, calibrates or otherwise determines the characteristics of the

performance of materials and products

Note 1 to entry: In the context of this part of EN 12202, the materials and products can be subjected to type

testing, batch release testing, process verification testing, audit testing, and witness testing, as applicable.

Note 2 to entry: A testing laboratory is preferably compliant with EN ISO/IEC 17025 [4].

3.4
quality management system
management system to direct and control an organization with regard to quality
[SOURCE: EN ISO 9000:2015 [5], 3.2.3]

Note 1 to entry: Requirements for quality management systems are given in EN ISO 9001 [1].

3.5
quality plan

document setting out the specific quality practices, resources and sequence of activities relevant to a

particular product or range of products
3.6
type testing

testing performed to prove that the formulation, product, joint or assembly is capable of conforming to

the requirements given in the relevant standard

Note 1 to entry: The type test results remain valid until there is a change in the material or product or assembly

3.7
batch release test
BRT

test performed by or on behalf of the manufacturer on a batch of materials or products, which needs to

be satisfactorily completed before the batch can be released
3.8
process verification test
PVT

test performed by, or on behalf of the manufacturer on materials, products or joints or assemblies at

specific intervals to confirm that the process continues to be capable of producing products which

conform to the requirements given in the relevant standard

Note 1 to entry: Such tests are not required to release batches of materials or products; rather they are carried

out as a measure of process control.
3.9
audit test

test performed by a test laboratory on behalf of an inspection body or certification body to confirm that

the material, product, joint or assembly continues to conform to the requirements given in the relevant

standard and to provide information to assess the effectiveness of the quality management system

3.10
indirect test

test performed by or on behalf of the manufacturer, different from that specified test for that particular

characteristic, having previously verified its correlation with the specified test

3.11
witness test

test accepted by an inspection or a certification body for type testing and/or audit testing, which is

carried out by or on behalf of the manufacturer and supervised by a representative of the inspection or

certification body, qualified in testing
3.12
material

generic term for formulations grouped by families, expressed by generic names, e.g. poly(vinyl chloride)

(PVC), stainless steel, brass or EPDM

Note 1 to entry: Definition from European Commission, Directorate-General for Enterprise and Industry, Sub-

group on Product Testing Procedures (EC, DG ENT and IND, SG PTP).]
3.13
formulation

clearly defined homogenous mixture of base polymer with additives, i.e. anti-oxidants, pigments,

stabilizers and others, at a dosage level necessary for the processing and the intended use of the final
