English term or phrase: slight rephrasing alteration
In July 2000 FEA was present at the Geneva meetings of the UN where the FEA Statements and information papers were discussed. The FEA developed Flammability Tests methods were then accepted. With a slight rephrasing alteration these test methods were submitted to the UN for the December 2000 meeting.

Explanation:
À mon avis, Il s'agit ici d'un changement que l'on apporte aux tests que l'on a mis au point méticuleusement. On pourrait aussi peut-être dire « correction ». À toi de juger!

Explanation:
Since I am not a native speaker of the French language I will leave the final phrasing to you and only give you the meaning of the English source text.
"slight rephrasing alteration" means that the text (describing the FEA Flammability Test methods) has been rephrased and thus changed slightly.

This is far from perfect but maybe you could write something like this:
"Une version du texte légèrement modifié a été soumise ..."

I hope this helps you a little.
