Purchasers of BIs have established methods to ensure that the BIs they purchased are acceptable from a quality standpoint. These methods are not consistent among BI users. Many users perform audits of the manufacturer and/or test the BIs in-house. Others will send their BIs to an outside laboratory to be tested (i.e. a third party test).
Performing quality audits are costly, but not as costly as performing extensive testing on each lot of BIs. Additionally, many lots of BIs will be rejected by second and third party testing, not because of a BI defect, but because of differences in test equipment and techniques.
