Within the scope of a DIN INS project, a flash thermography round robin test that evaluates reliability, comparability, and efficiency of different testing situations was organized. The results give information about the detectability of defects, e.g. depending on their size and depth, the evaluation methods and the materials used. Besides, the influences of equipment and parameters used by the participants on the results were analysed. All of the quantitative results as well as the feedback given by the participants will be presented in a DIN committee in order to contribute to a flash thermography standard
