  14. INSPECTION/TESTING.  Payment for the goods delivered or services rendered hereunder shall not constitute acceptance thereof.  Purchaser shall have the right to inspect such goods and servicesand to reject any or all of said goods and services which are, in Purchaser’s sole judgment, defective or nonconforming.  Goods rejected and goods supplied in excess of quantities called for herein may be returned to Seller at Seller’s expense and, in addition to Purchaser’s other rights, Purchaser may charge Seller all expenses of unpacking, examining, repacking and reshipping such goods.  In the event Purchaser receives goods whose defects or nonconformity is not apparent on examination, Purchaser reserves the right to require replacement or revoke its prior acceptance, as well as require Seller to pay any actual damages.  Purchaser may also purchase substitute goods or services elsewhere and charge Seller with any loss incurred.  Nothing contained in this purchase order shall relieve in any way the Seller from the obligation of testing, inspection and quality control
