The format a facility chooses to use to record a validation statement is not defined by regulatory bodies or certification schemes, which leaves each organization to document validation in their preferred method.


One can use validation forms created with prompts to guide the user through creating a validation statement, or a log that covers programs in a collected document, but again, all formats are acceptable as long as they are approved by the organization, completed in an understandable way and reviewed at least each year.
