    The present paper summarizes the procedures described in CWA 15627 [CEN Workshop Agreement, “Small Punch Test Method for Metallic Materials,” CWA 15627:2007 D/E/F, European Committee for Standardization, Brussels, Belgium, 2007] for determination of tensile and fracture characteristics of metallic materials from the results of small-punch tests together with the corrections of this document proposed in the frame of its prospective conversion into a European standard. The corrections were proposed on the basis of the experiences obtained in the period 2007–2012 at Material and Metallurgical Research, Ltd. (Ostrava, Czech Republic).
