Verification v validation
BS EN 9145, 2018, Aerospace series - Requirements for advanced product quality planning and production part approval process, published by the British Standards Institution suggests that validation is: ‘Assurance that a product, service, or system fulfils the needs of the customer and other identified stakeholders. It often involves acceptance with external customers.’
Construction Quality Planning Guide, Draft for Consultation, Published by the Construction Innovation Hub in May 2020, suggests that simply put, validation implies: ‘Are we building the right thing?’
