Validating a method

Abstract In validation the possibilities and limitations of a method are documented.

Validation is extremely important in order to implement a once-developed method successfully. During the validation, the possibilities and limitations of the method are determined and documented. In the paragraphs below it is stressed that the analysts themselves benefit most from an appropriate validation of the method that he/she developed. Taking responsibility for a developed method includes a sound foundation. What degree of validation is adequate depends on how the developed method is or will be used.

This chapter has been written by Peter Schoenmakers, Stella Brudin and Peter Pruim.
