Test modules are used to demonstrate compliance with the requirements. This European Standard specifies visual and physical characteristics of VMS as well as their durability aspects. It also provides relevant requirements and corresponding test methods, assessment and verification of constancy of performance (AVCP) and marking. NOTE - Provisions for the evaluation of conformity with regards to type testing are further specified in 6.2; provisions with regards to factory production control (FPC) are further specified in 6.3. This European Standard does not cover a) sign gantries, cantilevers, posts (supports) and foundations, b) signal heads, c) sizes and shapes of VMS messages, d) control units and monitoring units unless inside the VMS, e) control of sign luminance.
