Abstract: Abstract In this paper we derive some exact tests and one conservative test for a common location parameter μ of several independent truncated exponential distributions with different scale parameters. Tests for μ = μ0 against two-sided alternatives are suggested based on suitable combinations of natural pivots. The exact tests are based on non-minimal sufficient statistics while the conservative test is based on minimal sufficient statistics. Expressions for local power for alternatives μ > μ0 are derived and compared. It turns out that the power for alternatives μ
