In order for Startup to perform component and system testing, the appropriate test equipment must be identified and purchased. The equipment to be tested can range from common items to the more complex and exotic. The latter, often requires specific testing equipment that may be produced at low volume and without a manufacture's Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) listing. As this was considered an industry practice, some more uncommon test equipment was ordered and delivered on site without a NRTL listing. However, this was in contrast to project requirements for electrical equipment to have the NRTL listing or alternately, obtain approval from the Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) prior to the equipment arriving on site. Ultimately, this failure to realize project requirements resulted in additional resources being required in order to prevent impacting critical path activities.
