Verification - Verification is a process. It uses objective evidence to confirm that specified requirements have been met. Whenever specified requirements have been met, a verified status is achieved.

In the context of this standard, the term verification is used in at least two different situations: design and development and purchasing. Design and development verifications use objective evidence to confirm that design and development outputs meet specified input requirements. Similarly, objective evidence must be used to verify or confirm that purchased products meet specified purchasing requirements.

There are many ways to verify that requirements have been met. For example, you could do tests, perform demonstrations, carry out alternative calculations, compare a new design specification with a proven design specification, or you could inspect documents before you issue them.
