As an independent tester, I live in a black and white world. My job is to conduct ASTM tests to precise standards and document the results concisely. I can only "guarantee" that I do the job to testing specifications and industry standards - period. If the conditions are outside of ASTM F2170-11 (i.e. space not acclimated), it is noted in my report. Of course, I always lay out the basics of test requirements beforehand and hope the customer takes heed, and 99% do. When results are high, I'm almost always asked to make mitigation recommendations. But to protect myself, I tell them that as a third party testing agency, I can only make general recommendations, and I cannot recommend specific manufacturers. Last thing I need is for some contractor to install product XYZ improperly and have someone come back on me saying I recommended the product and it failed.

Bottom line it that the slab is ready or it's not, and when I'm done, the companies involved have thorough documentation of testing done exactly per ASTM standards, with a disclaimer that "future results may vary with changes in ambient conditions". That's the best I can do, and not once have my testing documents or protocol been questioned.
