It depends on different parameters and it is specific to project objectives, Test manager first needs to check constraints like scope,time and budget,quality and customer satisfaction, apart from considering the above points,
1. what percentage of test code coverage has covered, say for examples, my testing covers 80% code coverage, that is what we agreed upon with the client, it must be declared in your test project plan and it was already approved by your client/customer.
2.We need to check the team morale
in testing the applications, generally,not essentially every time, i have seen team losing interest in testing the same applications more than a year,before they would get demotivated and if you feel the application is reasonably working fine and meeting, if not exceeding the customers requirements, gets signed off from the customer.

I could add some more points, but this would give you enough thought for answering this question. Source: CoolInterview.com
