It has two components:

The validation records book provides templates on a validation certificate, tables to describe a practice's challenge load contents, penetration and drying times for challenge packs and load, heat distribution and chamber loading details, and physical and biological testing results. They are suitable for both simple and complex validations.

There is also a staff competency record for recording tasks for which staff have been trained and assessed as competent.
