Sample Criteria for Type Testing

11/13/2016 2:27 AM

For conducting type test of a product, is there any reference standard which provide us guidelines regarding samples. I mean these samples have to be new one supplied / provided by the manufacturer or these samples can be taken from field or from stock in warehouse”

Any extract from any standard if you can provide as support.

I will appreciate you for the same

Can you be more specific? Is it tomatoes or potatoes?

Cars or trucks or parts of washing machines?

If in doubt buy into ISO!

Sorry no freebies!

A comprehensive testing process will take from each of these and note the details of where and how the samples were acquired along with the results of each test, including the testing criteria, methods and procedure, followed by recommendations and reasons...and then listing the qualifications and experience of the testors....In other words all of the above and more...there are testing standards for almost everything, you must decide which standards you will adhere to...

If these products are certified by anyone to a published standard, the standard itself will have all the criteria you need to follow for testing reasons.

If they are not certified, ask your customer, how they would like them tested.

ISO standards should delineate what class or type the products fall into, based on performance within the confines of the testing standards.

CE, UL-FM, FDA, ASME, API, ASCI, NEC....? Internal standards perhaps or just some sort of sampling standard?

The answer can be provided by carrying out a Google search for the particular standard, in the particular country, for the particular product, none of which have been specified in the original post.

Good luck with that.
