International organisations concerned with standardisation and codification now tend to prefer the performance type of standard to the prescriptive types. The concept of performance demonstration has been supported by the PISC results and by the demonstration of the validity of validation assemblies. In this paper the general principles of PISC performance demonstration are discussed, with reference being made to the round robin tests and related parametric studies and actions.
