To ensure that each wallet’s private key and passphrase can be decoded properly, we use the BIP 38 standard’s confirmation code verification process, to verify and check the cryptographic integrity of every wallet that we manufacture. To increase our assurance, we will also spot-check wallets during the QA process by physically opening the wallet components to extract the decryption wallet passphrase and the encrypted private key, and testing the electronic decryption, to ensure that the funds deposited to the public address can indeed be transferred out using the blockchain. Once that wallet has been physically opened to reveal the private key and passphrase, then that physical wallet has been tampered with, and thus can no longer be sold.
