Making use of a local static potential model of the nucleon-nucleon interaction, estimates of the effect of the electrostatic interaction on tests of long-range charge independence are made, with special reference to data analyses in which the I=1 phase shifts are assumed to be same in p-p and n-p scattering at bombarding energies above 10 MeV. The major effect found is caused by a combination of the changes in the expected values of the observables produced by the changes in the phase-parameters of the searched low-L set of I=1 phases, and the associated shifts of the I=0 phase-parameters of the searched low-L set that result from their adjustment to compensate for the change of the I=1 set that is caused by the Coulomb corrections when a minimum of χ2 is looked for. These effects cause an increase in the pion-nucleon coupling constant derived from n-p scattering on the basis of the YRB1 (K0), YLAN4M searches by 5 to 7%, depending on details of the calculations. The violation of charge independence known to exist at very low energies in the 1S0 state, when extrapolated to the 10-350 MeV energy range for that state by means of the model, reduces the above change by roughly 1% of g02. The direct effect of the Coulomb corrections on the one-pion-exchange (OPE) set of phases in p-p scattering is to increase (g02)p-p by an amount estimated not to be greater than 1% of g02. The values of (g02)p-p and (g02)n-p obtained in Yale searches of the YRB1 (K0), YLAN4M series come closer together by about 3 or 4% of g02 as a result of the combined effect of corrections mentioned. Electrostatic corrections of p-p phase-parameters give values of the total scattering cross section σn-n on the assumption of charge symmetry of nucleon-nucleon forces; these values are compared with recent measurements of Measday and Palmieri. The applicability of multiple-scattering corrections of Glauber to n-D scattering at the relatively low energies of the experiments is briefly discussed. In view of the uncertainties in these as well as in the electrostatic corrections, there appears to be no reason for doubting charge symmetry. On account of the schematic character of the model used, all of the electrostatic corrections reported here have qualitative significance only, having been intended for general orientation only.
