VALIDATION. Confirmation by examination and provision of objective evidence that the particular requirements for a specific intended use are fulfilled. [3:  2.18].

VARIABLES MEASUREMENT.  Measuring and recording the numerical magnitude of a characteristic for each of the items in the group under consideration; this involves reference to a continuous scale of some kind. [2: 1.5.3]

VARIATE.  In contradistinction to a variable a variate is a quantity which may take any of the values of a specified set with a specified relative frequency or probability.  The variate is therefore often known as a random variable.  It is to be regarded as defined, not merely by a set of permissible values like an ordinary mathematical variable, but by an associated frequency (probability) function expressing how often those values appear in the situation under discussion. [1: 1.2].

VERIFICATION.  Confirmation by examination and provision of objective evidence that specified requirements have been fulfilled. [ 3: 2.17]

VERIFICATION SAMPLING INSPECTION.  Sampling inspection for ascertaining whether the producer's sampling procedures are in accordance with his/her declared sampling scheme.  Note: This is often called an audit of the producer's sampling procedures. [2: 2.4.10]
