STP785: Chapter 12—Tests for Compliance

    Pages: 6    Published: Jan 1982


    It is assumed that the plater will have performed his own testing to assure himself that his work will be acceptable to the purchaser. However, the purchaser will also wish to perform at least some of these tests. Such matters as who is to pay for tests, what proportion of the parts may be “out of spec” for a lot to remain acceptable, for umpire tests in case of disagreement, and for the period of time allowed the purchaser to notify the plater of rejection of a lot, are matters that should be written into the contract. Many tests are destructive, so that agreement must also be reached on what proportion of the parts may be tested to destruction; this must also be part of the original contract.
