This European Standard specifies methods of measuring the geometrical characteristics of wood flooring and wood panelling and cladding elements. This standard does not specify sampling, which is intended to be found in the product standards or test methods. This standard does not apply to elements which are installed. The Committee responsible for this standard is NA 042-01-14 AA "Rund- und Schnittholz - Spiegelausschuss zu CEN/TC 175 und ISO/TC 218" ("Round and sawn timber - Mirror Committee of CEN/TC 175 and ISO/TC 218") at DIN.
