some doubt on ISO 17640-2017
zoom image

hi, everyone! I have some doubt on the ISO17640. for Annex A, butt joint in plates and pipes, for example, if the thickness is 10mm, using the testing level A, for longitudinal discontinuities inspection, how could we get the total numbers of scanning is 2? why is it not 1?
