Methods

Click on the icone of the column order ( Cde) to add a method to your order (you can afterward change the quantity). The button to see the order allows you to modify the quantities, to delete methods and to validate the order. There is no on-line payment,  we can send you an estimate; the payment must be done by  bank transfer in Euros; the method will be sent to you by mail; the invoice will be joined to this sending; a 15€ amount is added to the global order if you are outside the SEPA (Single Euro Payments Area) zone.


If you desire a paper version, an estimate will be sent to you for the additional costs (printing, shipping....).

If the designation of the method is in French, there is no English version.

This method is no longer referred to  in CEC test methods and there is no longer quotation training  meetings because in Europe there is now only one specialist who can still apply this method.

However,  we put this method in the category of unserviced methods.for those who may have an interest in the method for historical reasons for instance.
