Considering measurement uncertainty is mandatory in assessing conformance to legal or compositional limits, and specific guidelines are available issued by ASME, ISO and Eurachem/CITAC. However, differences between ISO and Eurachem/CITAC wordings could induce some perplexities in the most careful readers. Possible problems arise from considering that, before performing a test, it should be decided whether it is to be a test for conformity or a test for non-conformity. This choice could perhaps require some renaming of acceptance/rejection zones as defined in the Eurachem/CITAC Guide. A tentative solution is discussed in this contribution.
