This video goes over PMI's rope line, and goes into a lot of details of UIAA testing. It's a powerpoint presentation turned into a video, so there's reading and graphics but no voice. I found muting the sound helped because it made it less distracting to read the text.
The UIAA equipment standard provides a baseline for equipment performance in a test lab under controlled conditions on new equipment. Although these test conditions are relevant to the conditions encountered climbing, conditions encountered at the crags and the condition of the equipment are equally important. This recommendation from the UIAA member federation The British Mountaineering Council (BMC) provides vital equipment information that is NOT explicitly addressed in the standard, particularly failure modes of the equipment and recommendations for the use, inspection, maintenance, and retirement of equipment.
