Wood-based panels – Sampling, cutting and inspection

This standard comes in three parts and provides sampling plans and statistical procedures for verifying compliance with all the EN specifications for wood-based panels.

The standard does not cover the sampling and cutting of test pieces for the derivation of characteristic values for structural design.  These tests have to be carried out on medium-sized test pieces according to the rules given in EN 789 : Timber structures – Test methods – determination of mechanical properties of wood-based panels.
