Contractually, you may be better advised to get the manufacturer to test them whilst you witness those tests.

For "normal use" you might want to consider the following:

Visual examination of the exterior

Visual Examination of the interior

Torque testing of manufactured joints

"Ductor" Continuity tests

Insulation Resistance tests

Current injection testing

Functional operation checks
