  1. Products that are still in the Insured’s physical possession; or
  2. Work that has not yet been completed or abandoned. However, Insured’s work will be deemed completed at the earliest of the following times:
    • When all of the work called for in the Insured’s contract has been completed.
    • When all of the work to be done at the job site has been completed if the Insured’s contract calls for work at more than one job site.
    • When that part of the work done at a job site has been put to its intended use by any person or organization other than another contractor or subcontractor working on the same project
