Focus on control : Sampling and acceptance testing

Introduction

To assess as precisely as possible the quality of a consignment, before its departure from the producer’s site, that is the aim of the « acceptance testing ». The control of the totality of the consignment being impossible, for time, commodity and cost reasons, a prior step of sampling is required : it enables to make a sample of the smallest possible size, but which is representative of the consignment.

International standard ISO 5022 gives directives for sampling shaped refractory products and methods enabling to carry out an acceptance test based on an assessment of the extent to which the specifications have been observed. This standard also applies to products manufactured from refractory materials.
