This European Standard specifies methods for both factory production control and external control of conformity of the properties of wood-based panels with the relevant EN specifications. However, it may also apply, at the option of the manufacturer, to wood-based panels applied for non-construction purposes. This European Standard is not applicable for the assessment of conformity with specifications of the properties of panels comprised in consignments. In such cases, EN 326-3 applies. For factory production control, if required, methods for the assessment of conformity of batches and of production over longer periods are given. For external control, if required, methods for the initial inspection of a factory and initial type testing of a product, and for the surveillance of the factory production control, are given. In this standard, control is based on the testing of small test pieces.
