Material test certificate issued by stockists

Could you advise stated below in the piping spec.

Certificates issued by material stockists or agents are not acceptable.


" Certificates for final products (such as welded fittings) shall include certification of the base material and a copy of the welding procedure qualification applied. If the Manufacturer of a semi-finished product and the Supplier of the base material are not the same, the certificate shall consist of two documents covering both stages of the manufacturing process.

The MTC may be issured by supplier or processor who are sold product or delivery.
I think so.

Material stockists and agents are trading companies without fabrication function so MTC by them are unvalid.
