Until the early 2000s, natural slate for roofing in the UK was covered by the quality assurance testing specification BS 680-2:1971. Initially compiled in 1944 when the only slates available in the UK were of British origin it included 3 simple pass/fail tests.

A rapid growth in international trade in roofing slate since the 1980s, primarily from Spain, has forced a change to the testing of slate. Indigenous industries still exist in the traditional European slating regions, such as Wales, alongside the imported Spanish product.

Present regulation requires slate to be tested to EN 12326 standards. The EN 12326 is based on a classification system where the onus is on the user to select a slate of the appropriate quality for their project and locality.
