This report describes the manufacture of homogeneous batches of Charpy specimens at four energy levels - nominally 30J, 60J, 80J and 120J. The actual impact toughness values for each batch were certified on the basis of the collaborative work of six laboratories with highly efficient control systems in order to ensure the quality of the tests. The certification concerned only V-notched specimens tested at 20 C. The work was done first according to the ASTM and subsequently according to the ISO standard. The certified value is for the mean of 5 specimens.
