If there are anymore drums left for verification. If the average length is found correct or more. The supplier should ensure that length measuring machine is available for measurement of the length by our inspecting officer. If the average length is found to be less than the declared. SEAL & SIGNATURE OF THE TENDERER 7 . then that particular lot may be accepted otherwise rejected. 10 %of total lot (in Drums) should be selected at the works. then weight of each verified drum should be carried out and average weight may be calculated. Then the weight of each of all the remaining selected drums may be taken and if these weights are matching with the average weight. Both ends of the AAA Conductor will be sealed by the supplier and seals will be contained in the drum and not exposed out of drum. i) VERIFICATION OF LENGTH OF CONDUCTOR : The Company shall ascertain the length of AAA Conductor at supplier's works and at the receiving store centers by measuring the actual length by length measuring machine used for the purpose. ii ) iii ) iv ) v) vi) Verification of length of conductor will also be carried out at each stores center for two drums out of each lot.11. INSPECTION : All tests and inspection shall be made at the place of manufacturer unless otherwise especially agreed upon by the manufacturer and purchaser at the time of purchase. the percentage of such short length will be applied for reduction for the entire quantity supplied in the lot at respective stores for acceptance. the lot will be accepted. The manufacturer shall afford the inspector representing the purchaser all reasonable facilities without charges . 12 . The physical verification of the length of the conductor should be carried out for maximum up to 5 (five) drums. The weight of AAA Conductor will also be checked for ensuring correct lay and length of the AAA Conductor . The declared length will be measured between manufacturer's seals at both ends of AAA Conductor. 13 .2 MARKING : The following information be marked on each package : Manufacturer's name b) Trade mark . For the verification of the length of the conductor.if any c) Drum or identification number d) Size of conductor e) Number and lengths of conductors f ) Gross mass of the package g) Net mass of conductor h) ISI certification mark . to satisfy him that the material is being furnished in accordance with this specification.
