- Witness Testing Program. This program is offered to clients who have numerous samples for testing, or manufacturer's samples too large to submit. Our engineers come to the manufacturing facility and witness testing performed by the manufacturer's qualified people. We charge per day instead of per item, plus the time to develop the test report.
