The paper analyzes the regulatory provisions and substantive rules which define the limits on and propriety of Government inspection and quality assurance. The limits on the location, time, and manner of Government inspection are discussed. Emphasis is on the ability of the Government to change the inspection location and liability for interference and hindrance caused by Government inspection practices. Chapter II evaluates the substantive rules which assess propriety of inspection and tests as determinants of contract compliance. The analysis covers specified and unspecified inspections and tests. The relationship between inspections and contract requirements are discussed, and the reasonableness of inspection is evaluated in the context of varying degrees of inspection subjectivity. In Chapter III, the interference and propriety analysis is applied to the special problems of sampling and verification inspections.
