What is Testing?
Testing is an activity which affects all aspects of a community,
ranging from control of production, the measurement of environmental
quality, assessment of health and safety, confirmation of quality
of construction, compliance with laws, regulations, purchasing and
other specifications. Testing supports domestic and international
It is also an activity which in the broadest sense covers the service
of testing, calibrating, examining, identifying, checking, or otherwise,
a material, a specimen, a component, a product, a system or an event
for conformity with specified standards or requirements. It is perhaps
the most commonly performed type of conformity assessment - that
is the process of determining that a product, process or service complies
with specified requirements.
