In the event no special workmanship standards or requirements are available at that time, Aspen Test will use generally accepted industry standards for such equipment. All electrical codes and other safety codes will be followed. In the event of conflict between the Client's specification and generally recognized safety codes, Aspen Test will advise the Client of such discrepancy and request direction.
