There are several methods that can be used to verify chemical composition of a heat (laddle analysis) and product analysis. It depends on the mill.  Call the steel mill directly, and they will tell you.

Optical Emission Spectrometry is the standard method used.  The following link has a lot of information on the method, equipment, etc.:
