Analytical methods need to be validated or revalidated

  • before their introduction into routine use;
  • whenever the conditions change for which the method has been validated (e.g., an instrument with different characteristics or samples with a different matrix); and
  • whenever the method is changed and the change is outside the original scope of the method.
