Significance and Use
Subjective evaluations of copies made from test originals can be used to determine the usefulness of a given copy system in a specific user application. Since many variables operate to affect the copy quality at any given time, small changes in quality may not have any practical significance for many users.
1.1 This practice guides the user toward preparing an original test subject, meaningful to his specific copying needs and to suggest ways in which the test subject may be used to evaluate images from office copy systems.
1.2 Additional evaluation of image characteristics are covered in Practice F807 and Test Method F875.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
