The results of inspection do not influence the final conclusion (they are stated in the test report and in the record on measurement).

In case, the verification/sealing mark is damaged, changed or removed, a brief description of the damage, change or removal shall be stated both in the record on measurement and in the test report (in the parts concerning the status of the verification and sealing marks).
