The second specifies the technical requirements for the certification of manufacturers and the technical requirements for the certification of specific models of boules.

The certification testing that is mentioned in this document is performed by the Laboratoire national de métrologie et d’essais (National Laboratory of Metrology and Testing), which is still known as LNE after its former name: Laboratoire national d’essais. It is a French reference laboratory responsible for testing products of all kinds for certification before they go on the market.
