There are several types of hardness tests, including the Brinell test, the Rockwell test, the Vickers test and the durometer test.
Bushing users should check for superfinish to minimize wear, blended radius to minimize tool damage due to misalignment, material hardness (Rockwell test) for long wear, concentricity and roundness to maintain accuracies, OD chamfer at bushing end to prevent peening over or mushrooming ends due to chip accumulation, and ID break (chamfer) to facilitate chip clearance and reduce tool wear.
Each one is individually Rockwell tested and comes in a transparent gift box.
