Thank you for your question regarding inspection of bonds and welds, it is our pleasure to help.
This is a hard one to answer, as every inspector seems to have his/her own special requirements (as I’m sure you know). But for E&S Grounding Solutions, what you have described would be perfectly fine. Being able to visually see the bonds on both ends of a conductor will also allow the easy testing of the conductor itself via a simple ohm-meter. While it will be possible that you have multiple parallel paths, it will at a minimum confirm that an effective path at least exists. The best way of course would be to leave at least one end of the conductor un-welded so that a simple resistance test could verify the conductive path.
We hope this helps!
