Although various test methods to examine the local bond behaviour of FRP strengthening systems to concrete have been proposed thus far, their implementation can lead to a wide range of results and a standard methodology has yet to be generally accepted. With these issues in mind, a Round Robin Testing (RRT) programme was carried out to assess the performance and reliability of small scale testing on various FRP strengthening systems, including both externally bonded laminates and near surface mounted reinforcement. Ten laboratories and eight manufacturers and suppliers participated in this extensive international exercise, which was initiated within the framework of the European funded Marie Curie Research Training Network, EN-CORE, with the support of Task Group 9.3 of the International Federation for Structural Concrete (fib). This paper describes the proposed testing programme and summarized some of the results obtained by the participating laboratories.
