This document specifies the reference methods to be used for type testing and in case of dispute where an alternative method has been used. For other purposes, in particular factory production control, it allows for other methods to be used provided that an appropriate working relationship with the test method has been established. This document provides non-contradictory complementary information that can be of use when producing or purchasing armourstone produced according to harmonised standard prEN 13383-1:2021.
