Explanation:
Допускается really does not mean permission - just that it's possible, not objected to. As for разрешается, I guess it's obvious - allowed, permitted. So, in the former case no one would kill a manufacturer for small deviation made by chance while in tha latter the manufacturer is officially allowed not to stick to standards:-)
