SMB Validation

What is an SAT?

A Site Acceptance Test protocol provides documented evidence that a piece of equipment, system, or integrated process that has been delivered to the end user has not been affected in the transportation and has been adequately tested at the end user’s facility and performed to the end user’s expectations after installation. The SAT document will complete a series of verifications to ensure that what was ordered has been supplied by verifying the original purchase order and all specifications (URS, FRS, DDS) outlined, prior to the manufacture of the equipment, have been respected and incorporated on the installed product.

Control system verification will also be executed and documented in the SAT protocol. Performance testing will also be outlined and the results documented to provide assurance that the piece of equipment, system, or integrated process being tested meets the end user’s expectations and requirements and can move on to the next stage of qualifications required to validate the piece of equipment, system, or integrated process.
