What is testing?
- Thursday, 17 January 2013
Testing is performing a technical measurement or examination, from which a competent person can draw a conclusion as to whether or not a product or service meets the requirements specified in a standard.
Typical tests involve measurement of dimensions, chemical composition, microbiological purity, strength or other physical characteristics of materials or structures.
Testing also includes assessment of electrical safety and freedom from physical flaws such as cracks, and other defects that may cause failure.
Domestic and imported products are tested for conformity to Standards. These are carried out by the appropriate UNBS laboratories.
